Major Lindsey & Africa Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Lawyer Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Major Lindsey & Africa in October 2012.
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – There were no difficult or unexpected questions. Answer Question
Managing Director Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Major Lindsey & Africa.
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – What are your weaknesses in the past as related to self-direction and motivation? View Answer
