Yes, there were elements of this process that were good but the overall feeling that I came away from was "waste of time other than confirming what I already knew about long interview experiences"

There are enough companies that don't do FAANG style that I don't think you have to be privileged to turn them down. In fact I think that you have to fairly privileged to have the time to be able to go through long interview processes. People who are in desperate need of a job (more likely a career switcher with family obligations and the like) are blocked from the FAANG tiers not from ability but from circumstance.

Thanks do the comment and glad you enjoyed the write up 😀
