Recruitment Fraud Alert

Notice to Candidates: Recruitment Fraud Alert

Please be aware of questionable job offers that are not specifically affiliated with McKesson and are not listed on the McKesson careers website.

McKesson has been made aware of unauthorized career opportunities offered by individuals posing as large American companies, including McKesson. The fictitious jobs are advertised on employment-search websites, such as Indeed.com and Craigslist.com, and prospective employees are required to share their personal and financial information, provide copies of their government-issued identification, and/or send money for application fees, processing charges or work permits.

The victims who are “hired” are often instructed to deposit a check (which is later returned as fraudulent) into their own account and to forward overpayment to individuals – usually via wire transfer.

Important information for job seekers:

  • McKesson has a formal application process that will always include at least one in-person interview with a McKesson representative. McKesson will not request an interview on a Google Hangout or text messaging.
  • McKesson will never request money for the opportunity to apply or work for McKesson.
  • McKesson does not require completion of tax forms, bank account or credit card information as part of the recruiting process.
  • If you are unsure if a message is from McKesson, contact EthicsPoint at 1.877.625.4625.

If you believe you have been the victim of a crime related to one of these scams, please contact EthicsPoint at 1.877.625.4625, and report the matter to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center for an investigation (http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx) as well as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) (www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov).
