I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at FTI Consulting in February 2014.

Interview Details – I applied through the online portal, I then got called by an HR to schedule an onsite interview,
The first round was conducted by two managing directors, it was pretty easy going through CV,
career aspirations, knowledge of e-discovery
The second round was pretty much an extended version of the first one, nothing
to worry about.

New York, NY

The process took 2 days - interviewed at FTI Consulting in September 2009.

Interview Details – First round was one on one with HR. Plus a writing test....
Everything was easy. Just a standard "tell me about yourself" type of question and why us type... fairly standard.
the essay portion was to write about anything in about 10 minutes. so I just wrote about a pretty standard SAT/GMAT type essay.

Second round with about four people at the division. Nothing special. No trick question.
