Bad company culture, tough management, performance doesn't matter
IT team (Former Employee) – Saint-Laurent – 13 November 2013
the worst ever team you can get, non-professionalism and vanity dominate, encouraged at all management levels. HR is just a puppet Anybody can harass you (despite their funny ICARE principles)- at the end you're free to leave the company
All you have to do is to make sure you don't disturb upper management - then you have a long life to live at Mckesson
fancy working place, good technology
non-competitive working environment, mediocrity encouraged
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 16 June 2017
low pay, no leadership, so many people missing work weekly sick?
Best part of the job is when you meet with a new coworker just like your self; a trusting shoulder to sometime, well even cry on.
For me the hardest part of this job is watching the full time employee come in late, sleeping, talking on their cell phones-- and so many Placement Company temps just like my self -- coming in early everyday, sometime working through my time lunch at my desk, even staying late ...and all for free.

QA Specialist (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 9 June 2017
It was nice working in McK, but the company constantly experiencing re-organisation, which caused insecurity of the job. Salary and benefit is competitive in the market. Everyone was nice to work with, however, due to the variety of business they cover, sometimes it is hard to get everyone on the same page.
great place to work but not great for learning or career advancement
Senior Software Developer (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 2 June 2017
Great work-life balance, great work environment, lots of social activities but the technology of the work was a bit behind the times and training or other advancement opportunities were hard to come by

Pharmacy Caseworker (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 16 May 2017
If you have any plans on advancing in this career don't plan on it unless you suck up. HR doesn't care about their employees especially if any life altering events happen. Be prepared for them to just stare down at you like a piece of garbage.
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Belleville, ON – 3 May 2017
A typical day at work is just doing small tasks over and over again. Its a lot of physical work so it does require a bit of fitness. The people are great and the management and supervisors are fantastic. I have nothing bad to say about working at mckesson canada.
Administrative Assistant, Operations (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 April 2017
Coordinating product and vendors and transport at least cost in conjunction with optimal production. Meeting the needs and ensuring requirements are met from the 140 employees on the lines to pack and load product to vendors in a timely fashion.
Team Work Setting
Multitasking, deadlines, troubleshooting all at once
Job was fine, bad timing at location, bad managers.
MATERIAL HANDLER (Former Employee) – Trenton, ON – 24 March 2017
Supervisors were rotating through frequently bringing in new and mostly favoring women in horrendous ways. Eventually it became about 70% women, with the few men there doing all the hard work. Employees were usually good to work with, it was a matter of supervisors being terrible in many ways.
Despite supervisors, it was a great job at the DC in Trenton, just a little too political and too far favoring women.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Trenton, ON – 16 March 2017
Every day was typically the same but extremely enjoyable. Everyone was easy to talk to and friendly. Nobody was nervous to lend you a helping hand if needed. Management was easy going and if you had a problem there was no need to be scared to bring up the topic to your supervisor because they were extremely understanding. The hardest part of this job was how fast everything was to be done but after awhile it became second nature.
