    A/R Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Charleston, SC (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Charleston, SC (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McKesson.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and a week later received an email to set up a telephone interview with a recruiter. After the telephone interview, I received another email to set up an onsite interview with two managers.

    Interview Questions
    • The telephone interview were basic questions related to the position. It was to see if you knew basic things.

      The onsite interview was disappointing. The two managers I interviewed with were different than the ones I was told. Most interviews you receive a handshake but I did not. Only one person asked questions while the other just sat there reading my resume'. My resume' really isn't that long. They didn't smile much or seemed excited about the company which made me feel out of place.
