Reimbursement Case Manager Specialist (Former Employee), Scottsdale, AZ – May 7, 2014
Pros: fun and friendly. pay is decent and benefits are plentiful
Cons: moving up is not easy unless your "friendly" with the manager, not very open to suggestions on employee work improvement unless your the manager.
A typical day at McKesson is always fun and rewarding. They make sure that ALL employees are well taken care of and that if there are any issues they are resolved in a fast and effective manner. Even though McKesson is a Large corporation you still feel like an individual that matters. Most of the time you feel like there is always someone willing to – more... listen. – less

Material Handler (Former Employee), Winchester, VA – April 30, 2014
Pros: time off, benefits, advancement, easy work
Cons: short lunch, mandatory ot, management, hours
Okay so if you are going to work for McKesson you should know somethings before you go into it. I have only worked at the Winchester location so speaking just from that experience. This company expects a lot from certain employees and will make sure they get that. They return the favor with great benefits and great time off. You start with 19 vacation – more... days(paid) and all major holidays off(paid). Starting salary for all Material Handler 1 is $11.50 a hour you will make $13 after 18 months there.
That's all the good with this company you will work crazy long days. especially if you're in shipping, L.U.M, and bulk pick is a little better. I worked in shipping Mondays and Tuesday are worst days(especially the beginning of the month) get in at 9:30 am and leave at 10, 11 pm, 12, or maybe even 1 am.and have to be back at 9:30 am. Later in the week the days are shorter like Thursday and Friday but you still leave at 8 or 9 pm. You will easily work 60 hours a week all OT is mandatory. Their is only one shift and everything has to be shipped that day so it is up to the 18 or so people in each department to get it done.
The management is lack luster allowing slower people to stay slow and expecting the faster workers to pick up the slack. If you get labeled or they think you are not a good worker forget it. They will change your hours, write you up for anything, and fire you. Kinda messed up when you put so much into it and they just throw you out like trash.I left because they did such things to be, I quit before they could fire me.
Please be careful if you're going to leave a job for this company think long and hard about it. I'am not a salty former employee or hate this company it has it's pros and cons I tried to help with that. I would still be working there if I didn't get "labeled" - God Speed. – less
Office Lay Educator (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – April 21, 2014
Pros: learning about the different chronic illnesses.
Cons: general out come was low because communities are not united .
An opportunity to learn about health care and how to stablish the connection between disease and resources available to modify the behavioral patterns of members of the state profile for chronic disease management. management does a great job keeping the team going, the hardest part of the job was traveling long distances to encounter members in remote – more... or far away locations, the most enjoiyable was to see the change in members behavior towards the chronic illness they had to deal with. – less
Material Handler (Current Employee), GA – April 20, 2014
Cons: expensive healthcare for a pharmaceutical company
MacKesson is a great place to work. It is a healthcare company, which will always be on demand, so no worries about the company been shut down. As long as peolpe follow the company policies, they will have their jobs. As far as job advancement, I havent been there for long to be able to testify on that. The only thing I found ironic is the fact that – more... the healthcare is very expensive. – less
Help Desk Analyst (Former Employee), Livonia, MI – April 17, 2014
Pros: you have a job
Cons: : you hate where you work
Where do I start, under appreciation, they look for multiple reasons not to give pay increase. Multiple employees are quitting weekly, for the last few months they lost atleast 10 people. Reason more work same pay and poor training. Managers do not respect the employees, and do not request a day off weeks in advance, it will not be approved. Short and – more... to the point – less
