    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Walpole, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at McKesson (Walpole, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Received email from HR requesting phone interview. The phone interview with HR was simply a monologue on their part- very few questions were asked of me. The interviewer seemed fully disinterested and in a hurry.
    I then received a request to phone interview with the hiring manager. I was sent an email with the date and time- very challenging to meet their time constraints. The manager interview was more of the same- a monologue.
    I've not heard back, and frankly this isn't the company for me. It seems there's a lot of turnover- and judging by the way both HR and the hiring manager acted, I can see why.

    HR called me and had me do an online evaluation and set up a time for a face to face. Then I met with HR and did a basic interview, with assorted questions. After that, HR told me about another interview I had to do, and told me the names of the people who would do them. It was two managers asking me the same questions HR had already asked.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at McKesson.

    Interview

    The first step was a phone interview with HR to prescreen candidates for a face to face. The interview lasted roughly half an hour and was very general - job experience, education, etc. The second step was a face to face with the DC Manager and their onsite HR person.
    Again, standard interview questions - work experience, what's the best/worst part of your job, how do you keep employees engaged, etc. After the sit down portion of the interview, I was shown around the DC. The entire process took roughly an hour and a half.

    Impersonal process. Received an invite to schedule my own phone interview. Waited two weeks to do the interview. It lasted about 10 minutes. She didn't ask me about my experience or even get through my whole resume. The recruiter called late and was in a rush. I didnt have her information to follow up, never heard back about the interview.

    Business Process Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    As an internal candidate, the process is slightly different. An informal meeting with the hiring manager or department head is used to express interest. Interest is expressed to the existing manager so they can endorse and initiate a transition plan. An online application is submitted, and then HR completes a phone screening and then proceeds to Hiring Manager. If the hiring manager is impressed, then you are interviewed by business partners within different departments.

    Interview Questions

    • As an internal candidate, why are you interested in this role?   Answer Question
