I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days – interviewed at NAVTEQ (Chicago, IL) in March 2011.
The recruiter called me based on seeing my resume on a job site. He arranged a phone screen with the hiring manager. About a week later I came into the office to meet with a number of people one on one and group style.

I applied through college or university. The process took a day – interviewed at NAVTEQ (Chicago, IL) in February 2011.
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 process took a day – interviewed at NAVTEQ (Carlsbad, CA) in January 2011.
Interviewed over the phone with one of their software developers. Flown down for a personal interview. This was the biggest waist of my time because they spent very little time with me. It seemed they just needed a body count for the hiring process and they had already made a decision.

The process took 2 days – interviewed at NAVTEQ (Malvern, PA) in January 2011.
The HR first contacted me, and explained about Trafiic.com which was essentially acquired by Navteq, and he set up a technical phone interview. The lady who called me just started shooting technical questions at me without explaining about the position or the kind of work they do. I was then scheduled to meet with 3 technical people for a "casual" interview - but guess what..the first guy who came in had a 2 inch thick bundle of technical questions. They also explained how people are expected to work longer hours and during weekends if required.
The Malvern campus looks really nice, but the attitude of this company is far from it's parent company based in Chicago - it has a small company feel to it. Also, the HR didn't even bother informing me that I wasn't selected.

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at NAVTEQ (Chicago, IL) in September 2010.
I got an email from the Director of the department to set up a phone interview. Had the phone interview. Afterwards I had the interview on site with the same Director that I had the phone interview, another Director, a Manager a Scientist and HR. 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." Interview with HR was pretty standard.
Interviews were relaxed.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at NAVTEQ (Malvern, PA) in July 2010.
The interview process was very straightforward and open. The salary range was presented during the initial phone screen. During the in person interview, I met with the director of the group and two senior level team members. We discussed my previous work history and what skills I possessed. I was told about the core business and what a typical day is like. We discussed the company culture and how people interact with each other. Overall, it was a very positive discussion with all members.

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at NAVTEQ (Chicago, IL) in June 2010.
After SIX WEEKS of back and forth from their HR dept, I finally got an interview scheduled. Interview day comes, and interviewer gets tied up in a meeting. I received no notification until TWO hours of waiting around like a donkey. I still have yet to have the phone interview, but after seeing this hiring process circus act, Im extremely reluctant to even set foot in this place.

Very drawn out and chaotic - positions appear, change, disappear. Strong nepotism - more then a third of hires are someone's (usually VP's) buddies.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days – interviewed at NAVTEQ (Wayne, PA) in March 2010.
I met them at the career fair. I gave them my resume and they scheduled an interview.
During the interview there were two people, a developer and an HR person. They asked me technical and general questions about what I wanted to do in the future and why I wanted to work there. They are a growing company working on location based advertising and maps for GPS systems.
Three days later, they called me and offered me the position and asked me when I wanted to start working.

HR needs work. Seems aloof.
