Who started this little vicious circle - it doesn't matter. Somebody has to

That's the most naive thing I've ever heard you say. Many companies don't care if you respect them or not, they'll still treat you horribly. I'll also never work for one of those companies -- but plenty of people do. Depending on your situation, there could also be reasons why you're forced to work for one of these places for months or longer. As long as you are, it's important to make sure they don't take advantage of you.

See but the flip side of this is are you willing to endure a two day long
interview? Would you tolerate being asked about your personal life? What if an
interviewer asked you "do you do drugs recreationally?"

Then it's a stupid interview.
