    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Magellan Navigation (Santa Clara, CA) in March 2010.


    I received a call from the SVP of Sales regarding a position for Business Developement with Magellan. I was very happy with the discussion where the interviewer asked a variety of questions related to my background, work experience, and personal details. I was pleased to see that he took the time to ask about my personal life, children, etc... and gave me a good sense that they appreciate the Work/Life balance. I was then asked to come in for a 1-on-1 interview and was very pleased with that result as well. The offices were very nice and organized. It was a great experience! I hope to receive an offer soon.
