    I have been working at McKesson part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    overall great experience, great people if you embrace the culture. Can easily make life long friends if you apply yourself. Although duration was short, I still keep in touch with the guys I worked with.

    Cons

    not all employees work at same pace, promotions tend to be more of a "guys club". I would suggest making as many friends as possible. Reviews tend to be overly critical even when you are the most efficient at position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    great job

    Pros

    Very people oriented. In most places hourly employees are treated very well.

    Cons

    Front line management is taken for granted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the well being of front line manager as much as you do hourly associates.
