    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at McKesson in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    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 Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Details

    Takes about 3 weeks. People were friendly, up front, gracious and sort of busy doing their jobs, so there was a good mix of interaction. Culture seems more in the passing time mode than actually looking enthusiastic.
