Interview Preparation Tips

Interview preparation tips for other job seekers - That's a virtual interview with a panel of two two. I was asked questions on my experience and job description related stuff.
Second round was a F2F one which went really well
But the HR team is pathetic and highly unprofessional. I have cleared both rounds and was told I was selected. However there was discussion on the pay where I didn't agree to the amount they have quoted as I have already shared my expectation during screening itself. HR said he will discuss internally and did not come back. Didn't even attend my calls or reply to my mails.

Overall it's a terrible experience with the HR team.
