First of all - I'm in the same boat, here's what ND colleagues of mine shared when I asked the same question:
- Prepare for questions you can prepare ahead and practice!
- Breathing exercises do work. Don't forget to box breathe.

And how I approach these:
- Write down the questions, and Paraphrase before giving your answer, and ask clarifying questions if it allows.
Q: "What are the drawbacks of applying X?"
"The reason I believe X is not a great approach was..."
- Try to keep your answers concise, and let them know that they could ask for a specific part of the response if they need to.
This for me helps me to stay in track of time and makes me feel in control of the whole interview.

Hiring manager sends me an email with only standard benefits, no bonus, etc. Are these red flags?

Random, but valid/persistent thought.

How can I get over this feeling? I'm over the whole "stand in the line of fire to prove how good I am" bs. Any recommendations for getting over this or possible industries to pivot into to avoid bs interview processes and ghosting?

Can anyone here familiar with FDM Group shed more light on their contracts and operations?

Does this group also have a non-compete which prevents you from working a second job should you need more money?
