Case Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 July 2018
Good employer, great team. The workload can be a bit much sometimes but the work is rewarding. The employees are friendly and social and helpful. The management is good, but it's the type of workplace where promotions are given to friends.

Sorti de l'enfert
Commis d'entrepôt dans plusieurs postes (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC pie-ix25 July 2018
Après 4 ans de service dans plusieurs départent de l’entrepôt, je n'ai jamais eu l'impression d'être féliciter ou remarqué sur mes bon coups. Les seuls temps que tu vas les entendre te parler c'est pour te chicaner ou pour te faire faire de l'overtime OBLIGATOIR qui peut aller jusqu’à 4h obligatoire. Travail très routinier de soir et qui prend 0 en compte les besoins des employer (besoins familial, besoins médical etc). Bref, ils veulent juste que tu ferme ta geule et que tu travail (avec un rendement quand même élevé et sévert) sans rien demander.
Pros
salaire
Cons
overtime obligatoir presque tous les jours, surveillance constante et envahissant sur la productivité, peut prendre 5 ans avant d'être permanent, travail routinier et plat, pas de souci des besoins de ses employé

Programmer Analyst (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC23 July 2018
Incredible job with very low salary expectations....no opportunity to grow, however. Management doesn't look inwards for their director promotions. New high level managers that don't provide guidance to IT workers since no visibility.
Pros
Team work
Cons
Not learning any new innovative technologies or no training provided

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB4 July 2018
I worked with McKesson Canada for 11.5 years, and was supported in my career and knowledge development during that time. There is a lot of opportunity for growth, whether that be in your current position, and movement within the company.
I would highly recommend working at McKesson if one has the opportunity - there's a whole lot more to a distribution company than just the shipping!!!

Omnipod Customer Care Representative (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON3 July 2018
Work/Life balance was satisfactory. Never a dull moment always something to do and something on the go. A job that you can really sink your teeth into, provided a nice challenge and satisfaction of a job well done at the end of each day. You really felt like you were making a difference in a patients life through the service you provided. I returned to school in January 2018, unfortunately there were no Part-Time openings, reluctantly handed in my resignation.
Pros
Good Pay, Great co-workers
Cons
location

PHARMACY TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) –  Coquitlam, BC10 June 2018
A typical day at work is busy. Training is not thorough and management at the head office is lacking. Workplace culture suffers because there is little to no support. The Most enjoyable part of the day was getting to leave the office.

Distribution Manager (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB17 May 2018
McKesson is a very busy atmosphere to work in. Upper Management is typical in that they can only see the big picture and don't realize that it is collection of pictures that make up that whole. As a result unnecessary cutbacks in the wrong places and personnel layoffs.

While working at McKesson I learned how to adapt to a fast paced physically demanding environment while making new friends with the very welcoming and friendly staff. The workplace was always fun and well kept. Although I only spent a short time there due to unforeseen events I would definitely love to be a part of the workplace again. Great place and people to work for.
