Social Worker (Former Employee), San Francisco, CA – March 3, 2014
Pros: worked from home
Cons: there was not enough management support
My daily routine was to be on my computer at 8 a.m. daily group meeting there were 6 social workers who handled the state of Illinois. I covered the largest region because the felt more social workers – more... were needed in Chicago Region due to higher ER usage. I would on average call 20 of my clients see how they were doing and setup for home visit that month. I was responsible to see all clients in emergency status within 3 days. I worked closely with the medical nurse who was assigned to my region and the mental health nurse also assigned to my region. We had locators who would research and find clients who were high users and if they could not find these people I would take over the task. There were about 400 co workers who at anytime many would call me for guidance in my specific region. I had a very good relationship with them and the social workers I worked closely with. – less
Material Handler (Current Employee), chatham on – April 24, 2015
A typical day at work is very fast paced. There is always something to do. I have learned how to use a new computer system that is unique to McKesson. Coworkers are friendly and helpful. Hardest part of the job is all the lifting of boxes, some are fairly heavy. Interacting with my coworkers and working as a team.
Fast pace, productive, friendly, courteous, excellent benefits & wages,
Case label person (Former Employee), Ottawa, ON – April 4, 2015
Pros: Recognition for your work

-A typical day consisted of replenishing, put away of products, inventory adjustments, assisting in shipping or receiving & order filling. The educational tools that were provided allowed me to prosper – more... within the company. -Management is very driven oriented in obtaining results. -A team player environment was demonstrated amongst most of my co-workers, -The hardest part was making sure everyone's needs were attainable. (CUSTOMER SERVICE) -The most enjoyable part was I always knew that when I went into work it was because wanted to be part of the work environment. – less
Cons: job future is uncertain, can be stressful, lack of communication in some areas
I have an administrative position with McKesson. In general I love my job and my coworkers. But unfortunately this company seems to have run into some tough times. Things are changing for the worst, corners – more... are being cut to reduce costs but yet it seems not to be in the necessary places. There is a huge disconnect between head office and the rest of the company. Benefits have been reduced. Positions are being eliminated. I have seen people who have worked for McKesson for over 20 years being let go with no warning, simply because they can hire someone younger and cheaper to replace them. I find it shameful. I had hoped that McKesson would be a long term career for me, but given the outlook of their future, even if my job is not cut, I question if this is the company I want to work for. – less
Terrible company with no positive things about environment. Not a safe position there.
McKesson Employee (Current Employee), Calgary, AB – February 26, 2015
Pros: gave you a free chicken dinner.
Cons: have to watch what you do and wonder who will be let go next, they only bring friends in to work there for their spys.
Terrible place to work in Calgary. Unprofessional team. Many problems with how things are done. They talk about team but it is a team that everyone gangs up. Can't trust people there and management is – more... all hypocrites as they bring people down. Pay is terrible and they want you to be happy that you got less than a 1% raise. Benefits keep changing for the worse. No security in the job as company is losing money and they have fired people and not stopping. They want you to work more or harder as they think that will fix all the problems that they have, to many problems that do not get fixed. – less
