You are just another number here
Worked in HR (Former Employee), Saint-Laurent, QcMay 29, 2013
Pros: flex hours
Was recruited to work at McKesson, after 5 months had the rug pulled out from under me. My boss let me go without any reason, they paid me so that I couldn't go after them but there was no notice, no reason, no willingness to help me get better at the job I was recruited to do. Not a "thank you", no "good luck"... HR team works hard to implement their polices of ICARE and to create a good working dynamic in every department but their own. I was deeply hurt by their lack of concern or passion, just out the door and I was easily replaced. Very cold people.

Poorly Managed like I've never seen before
Inventory Control (Former Employee), Calgary, ABMay 23, 2013
Pros: icare program
Cons: management, circus environment, revolving door
Shocking how poorly managed this place was, just a revolving door. Some attempt to promote the ICare program but values aren't being displayed by adopted by certain departments such as HR. I've never experienced such a 'circus' environment before with such a work/life inbalance. Very shocking.

Would never work there again
Warehouse (Former Employee), edmonton, albertaJanuary 10, 2013
Pros: great staff to work with
Cons: managenment does not care about staff
Lots of work for what you get paid, Managenment has no idea what they are doing. If you happen to get a manager or supervisor position - long hours and lots of work.

Customer oriented, great co-workers
Software Engineer III (Current Employee), Westminster, COApril 23, 2012
Pros: good pay and benefits, stability
Cons: upper management "thrash", tiny cubes offering no privacy
McKesson is an enjoyable place to work, allowing employees work hour flexibility to provide some measure of work/life balance. I was fortunate not to be working on the "cutting-edge" products where much longer hours were expected, although I did work on some intense short-term projects too.
My McKesson co-workers are, with almost no exception, bright, personable and hard working.
First level managers dothe best job they can, but they were so often required to act as Product and/or Project Managers that they did not
Upper management, on the other hand, changes personnel frequently and changes priorities, and focus, with each "thrash".

Great systems and a wonderful culture.
Supervisor Warehouse Operations (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABApril 22, 2012
The McKesson iCare principles should be adopted by all companies and employees. They encoourage everything to be done from a base of RESPECT. I miss that since I have come to a different company. McKesson is a leader in it's foeld in so many ways.

j'ai préféré les retours et le travail général de jour, le soir j'ai trouvé cela pénible, beaucoup de bruit et beaucoup de monde au commandes
préposée aux commandes (Former Employee), MontréalAugust 31, 2012
Pros: d'avoir fait pas mal le tour de l'entrepôt en travail général ... inventaires, retours, commandes, rx, 2e livraison, placement de produits en tablettes et réserve.... système informatique des retours, et plus
Cons: surtout travailler le soir du dimanche au jeudi de 17h20 à 13h40... horaire difficile pour moi ...
J'ai appris beaucoup la débrouillardise, le travail à la chaîne, les produits pharmaceutiques: les réfrigérés, les antinéoplasiques, les rx, les narcotiques, les emballages requis, les retours de marchandises périmées, brisées, discontinuées, etc.... le travail d'équipe, préparation des commandes aux pharmaciens... placage des produits dans leur place vente et réserve.... l'importance du travail bien fait....
