There were three rounds of interviews. None of the questions asked were job related. They mainly want to know what type of personality you have and whether you will mesh well with their current team.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Major Lindsey & Africa (Baltimore, MD) in February 2015.
I was interviewed by the three people on the marketing team--met first with the director and then met with the other two people together. The group was reserved but friendly. They didn't ask any "trick" questions; instead we discussed the responsibilities of the job and how my experience matched those responsibilities.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Major Lindsey & Africa (Washington, DC) in October 2012.
The interview process went well. The people at MLA are nice but they do lack some basic information about the job and the interviewers that they are seeking candidates for. For example, one MLA individual stated that an attorney I was interviewing with specialized in a particular area of law and the interviewer had never worked in that area of law. It was misleading and caused a quirky interview.

Extremely thorough from the recruiting process to meeting management. Be prepared to show data on past placements. Can take a while to become a Managing Director as they must do their due diligence and ensure fits. Lots of phone time with initial recruiting expert.

Can pick between O base and higher percentage of placement fees or a decent base/forgivable draw and lower percentage of fees.
