    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at NAVTEQ (Chicago, IL) in January 2013.

    Interview

    3 step process: 1) Technical Recruiter contacts you, tries to determine whether you fit the position being offered based on experience and keywords in your resume (the technical recruiter has no technical background). 2) Phone Interview: There is a scheduled 30 min phone interview where you will be asked basic questions about the main languages for the position at hand. 3) In Person Interview: there is a series of 4-45 minute interviews with a pair of interviewers each. The final pair will be the hiring manager and her/his 2nd in command (the ScrumMaster of the group). 4) Background Check: They will attempt to confirm your entire employment history that you put on your resume. Additionally, they will demand proof of your previous salary. This is a measure they take to keep your salary from coming in too high for their tastes.

    Interview Questions

    • -More in-depth questions about the language at hand and central libraries. (For Java, the Collections framework is focused on heavily). -Questions about Design Patterns (Gang of 4 book). -Questions about unit and integration testing, Agile Practices. -Logic Puzzles.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Research the market before giving an expected range to the Technical recruiter, that number will come back to you during negotiations. The recruiter is the point of negotiation. It is their job to temper the enthusiasm of the hiring manager and keep the offer "within reason." Don't be afraid to ask, the worst they can do is counter offer or stick to their original plan.

    Business Affairs Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at NAVTEQ (Chicago, IL) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Four (4) interviews total. One (1) phone interview, and three (3) face to face interviews. To accomplish these interviews in a six-week timeframe is aggressive, but positive if you're considered a candidate. Interviews were a combination of behavioral interviews as well as a case-based interview. Future advice to candidates would be to brush up on your case-based interview process questions. Regarding the people, office, and work culture, I would classify it as a technology start up culture, with a beginnings of the corporate parent exhibiting their values onto the organization.

    Interview Questions

    • If we provide a solution at $2/unit, then propose a bundled solution to our client at a higher price, what should that price be and why?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very little room to negotiate. I feel the offer is very fair and equitable.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NAVTEQ (Chicago, IL) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I spoke to the recruiters that came to my university for our career fair. Got an interview for the next day from that interaction. The interview lasted for about a half-hour and was a mixture of behavioral and technical questions. Behavioral questions included how I would get people to do things without having authority over them. Technical questions included testing a linked list with an error in it and explaining what a natural join was databases. A week or so after the interview I got contacted by someone from HR asking me some questions about my willingness to move and salary expectations. I didn't hear back from them for a few weeks after that and when I followed up they informed me that they had moved forward with another candidate.

The interviews with the Directors and the Manager were more broad and general. The Scientist asked more technical questions like:" I have this issue, how would you approach it."
