    I worked at McKesson full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Starting pay is decent, benefits sound promising as does the schedule.

    Cons

    Ever changing and neverending shifts.
    Can't find the supervisor
    Trainers who... don't.....
    Rates that can't be defined by the trainers.
    Lies, lies, and more lies.....

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving control of the building to immature twenty-somethings. Honor your hiring offers. Apply honesty to your offered schedules, stop with the vague description that allows you to escape honoring an offer.

    I have been working at McKesson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is good but not good enough.
    Full time benifits are to par.
    Theres value in the work but not working for company.

    Cons

    Company tries to paint a picture that material handler employees are valued but compay polices dont share the same colors.

    Unfair polices keep getting stricter and stricter making it more difficult to almost impossible to meet all standards or even maintain long term employment. "All in the name of emprovment".

    Anyone who has worked with mckesson long enough knows its a revolving door at material handler level of employment.

    Management pretends to listen to your opinions and complaints with no real intentions of changing anything. "This is just a social gimmick"

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you put "must be willing to sell your soul" and "super human" as part of job requirments.

    I have been working at McKesson full-time

    Pros

    Compare to small companies, McKesson have decent days for PTO and good matching benefit for 401K. people said insurance is good too, but I don't buy health insurance through the McKesson.

    Cons

    Depends on the department, work could be very micro-managing. Treat employees like kids. The location where I am working at, majority of people in management are very racist.
