    I have been working at McKesson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay has recently been increased, work schedule strictly Monday through Friday(No weekend work, ever), good health benefits if you're a Vitality member, unlimited jury duty pay, vehicles are newer, customers are awesome depending on area, fair system used to measure performance, plenty of overtime.

    Cons

    As with all companies, there are a few issues. The main distribution center in Chino is constantly late getting product to us which leads to delays, sitting in bumper to bumper traffic while traveling to your route in the morning, our warehouse is in a pretty sketchy part of town so we don't entirely feel safe at times, certain customers are closed for lunch(usually 2 hours) so I have to rearrange the order in which I complete my route to accommodate them and dealing with inclement weather. But, some of these are through no fault of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Please find a better way of getting our product to us in a more timely manner. It really sucks having to stand around and wait for the product to arrive while we could've already left the warehouse on our way to our first delivery.
