I'm interviewing for a non-tech role (content developer, for technical docs) at MSFT. I've had my screening and "informational" round; next will be the 4-hr loop with a few people. Curious what the interviews might be like for a role like this (I know engineers/programmers get coding questions and problems to solve on the spot...). Anyone here familiar?

I’ve always gotten the advice that when you want to switch jobs you should take interviews from places you’re not actually interested in, so you can understand your value in the market and have better negotiating power. I’m doing that rn - took a couple interviews to gauge my skills, my market value, and see what I need to work on for interviews that I actually care about. However, I feel really guilty about wasting their time and going all the way knowing I’ll just say no at the end. Wwyd?
