    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at McKesson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Off shifts available, benefits, indoor environment best in class.

    Cons

    Long shifts, hardly ever off when shift is scheduled to end, jobs change and responsibilities with little or no notice or training.

    Advice to Management

    Introduce mentoring and developing people to leads and supervisors. Rate and retain leadership on developing new employees. Envision all ages as possible team members, train team, meet as teams, dont ask for committees then do something different than what those committees suggest. Allow one team, not shift specific teams/committees as necessary to improve the environment as a whole.

    I have been working at McKesson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Money is ok. Job is easy. PTO is good.

    Cons

    You never know when you're getting out. You cannot have a work life balance with this job. You would think since its a medical company you would get the best health insurance...yeah not the case.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people so 8 hour days are a normal thing not miracles. Balance work loads.

    Pros

    Great company and decent benefits

    Cons

    The pace and standard that is required is ideal for any company but select few can maintain the pace and accuracy required.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say, they are fair within the parameters of their job requirements.

    I worked at McKesson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    PTO and health insurance. Coworkers are generally okay to good.

    Cons

    Supervisors are absolutely subpar. Their obsession with the "rate" (processing as many orders as possible) is absurd. They are out of touch with the people doing the work. They sit in their office and only come out when they want to push more orders out resulting in lots of overtime. Many temp employees burn out and quit because of how boring and repetitive the job is. Most of the people at Central Fill Buffalo don't want to be there. They either have nothing else or are trying to get out. I could go on but to sum up: please avoid Central Fill Buffalo. They say that they want this to be a fun place that people enjoy working for but it's the exact opposite.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Hire new supervisors who know how to properly manage a building. They need management that cares about their employees wellbeing. They need supervisors who don't push their employees to benefit the company and offer no benefit (or inadequate benefit) to the employee. Better supervisors are sorely needed.

    I have been working at McKesson full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    40-50k a year as of 2019. Occasional free lunch. Very easy/dull job. Most people mind there own business, are respectful.

    Cons

    Very PC company. They don't hire the best or brightest supervisors. They say one thing and then do the opposite.(hypocrite$)

    Advice to Management

    Stop the B.S., no one believes you truly care about anything other than money/publicity.
