Had multiple rounds of interviews for a company. All positive feedback so far. They mentioned it will end with a final round of meeting with HRBP. I had to Google what that meant and it’s Human Resources Business Partner. What should I expect to be asked because I never had to have a final interview with a HRBP. Is it a good sign if I got this far in meeting with them? Is it indicative that I’ll highly get the job offer and it’s just a formality? How can I best prepare? Thanks!

I lost the passion I had for my job almost a year ago.
My company hired people with same or less experience than I do, but are paying them 30% more than me...
When I requested a raise, they said I'd get 15% for my "hard work"... Come to find a week later that everyone in the company got a 10% raise, even people who just got in or are awful performers, that means my real increase due to my "hard work" is only 5%.

Market offers are around 20% more but haven't been able to pass the interviews.
