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.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week – interviewed at NAVTEQ in June 2010.
The interview process was very laid back. They make sure you know your stuff but not in the overly intimidating way that some other corps enjoy

I was satisfied with my salary negotiation. They gave me more that I asked for

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at NAVTEQ in March 2008.
Initially, HR brought me in for an interview and I didn't hear back for weeks. It was if I feel through the cracks except for the occassional, we're interested. The second time around, it was much more professional and standard, maybe because the first HR guy was no longer with the company.
