    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
