    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at McKesson (Carrollton, TX (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Long and lengthy process. I interviewed with 7 people over a period of 3 weeks. I only did one in person interview and the other 6 were over the phone. Overall, it was pretty easy going. They stated the salary upfront before the interview process began. I asked if it was negotiable and they said depending upon the hiring manager.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at McKesson (San Francisco, CA (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Received a screening interview fairly quickly. All the questions were very general based on work history. Recruiter said because I was an internal referral, I would get a call back from the head recruiter or even pushed to the hiring manager. Didn't hear back for a week and when I followed up - I didn't get the rejection email for another few days.

    Interview Questions

    • Did you graduate college? How much experience do you have with pivot tables? (This was emphasized greatly.)   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at McKesson.

    Interview

    Interviews were two rounds, phone screen with HR & in-person. Phone screen was approximately an hour, and was more intense than most typical phone screens. Big focus on graduate education, problem-solving and dealing with ambiguity. Followed up within a week to schedule in-person interviews at SF HQ. Included five 1:1 interviews with a variety of members from the team as well as the SVP. More relaxed than the phone screen, a few interviewers were late and one had to cancel.

    • Nothing too out of the ordinary - standard behavioral / situational questions.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at McKesson (Atlanta, GA (US)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I used an internal contact to help secure the interview. Did face to face with two people and a teleconference with the third. The campus was really nice. The building was beautiful and security was tight. The people from security on up were exceptionally friendly and nice. One of the interviewers had a conflict and we were easily able to reschedule that - one of the assistants there even offered to hold a conference room so that it could take place. Questions asked were standard type questions, with some lingo that is probably McKesson specific. They dive exceptionally deeply into the topic so be prepared to speak to anything at the micro level.

    The interview process was very intensive - with 6 interviews in total. The feedback and the interaction with the recruiter/company during the process was fantastic.

    I applied through other source – interviewed at McKesson.

    Interview

    It is important for anyone interviewing to know about "targeted selection" process. They are trying to see if you hit the target - meaning describe how you can do the job.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at McKesson.

    Interview

    After three months and 9 interviews - (3 phone interviews/6 in person) and hours spent following up with them: they decided they were going to cancel the position and not hire anyone. I have heard other people that I know say that it was a 6 month interview process for them before they were told they were not going forward with the position. Don't waste your time on Mckesson.
