What?! Telemarketers can't call me? D'oh!
Ok you employer. Thanks for not calling me back I called a the area where i'd be working at and some assistant told me they found someone.
Now I wouldn't have a problem with this but you been @#$% stringing me along for a @#$% week. Not to mention the last time i went in was suppose to just discuss specifics But no it wasn't it was anoterh @#$% internvew with a another person from the company @#$%. Whatever I can handle it. Blah blah Go on Really hitting it off it seems, she tells me if that theres quiet a few propertys i'd be of value at and how shes looking for someone to grow and I look like the right canidit blah blah we go on to specifics then salary again Which is a big @#$% gray area. I just say i'm negotiable I'll do anything for a oporunity at a great company. But she sticks me at a price @#$% fine i'm worth xxx amount. But I can negotiate it. And we keep talking i get walked around the facility shown a few areas. Gos off good come back talk small chat. Say goodbye and she said i'll call you thursday morning possibly friday.
Friday ....nothing...so i call and find out they picked someone else.
Now why on @#$% earth would you string someone along like that not to mention telling them I'd have great oportunitys at this place and could be a valuable asset just to @#$% pick someone else. Good way of bursting someones ego i mean really a polite nice resume we'll get back to you. But really did you have to @#$% string me along and tell me theres a multiude of positions I could grow into and advance. I mean really Just next time say we'll call you if we decide to work with you.
I'm @#$% sick and tired of blindly negotiating my salary. I swear to god I either say to @#$% little or not @#$% enough. They think i'm to high to be a Building Egineer, but this guy I just interviewed with wants me to paint walls and mow lawns for @#$% more then you tried to get me. Just @#$5 come out and say i'm looking for a guy between x and x amount. Stop with the cloak and dagger @#$% about pay scale You say I'm looking for a person between x amount and x amount. Depending on skill. Looking at your resume and your exeperience and skill i can offer you X amount. Is that hard I can tell you no, or yes. But Really @$% being cheap like that is @#$% pissing me off. Espeicaly when I can paint a wall and mow a lawn for more then you just asked. Well I tell you what, You get what you @#$% paid for. Good Luck

I absolutely refuse to give the first quote on salary expectations. If pressed *hard* into a corner I will comment on present trends (and it is important to know what the market would loosely value the position at) and even perhaps give examples of medium long-term expectations but dammit, you are the one with a budget and an expected range! Start the ball rolling and let's see if we are in at least a neighborhood hey? Nothing drives me battier than seeing the essentially same job where HR1 has an idea of 35k/annum while HR2 is flexible around 60k.
If the HR weenie wants me to flat-quote a salary, I'll frankly walk on the job prospect before low-balling myself or initial-quoting myself out of contention. Annoying as all hell but I refuse to play that particular game.

Rather than just walk out when they ask you what you want to be paid, just say
"A million dollars a week. Do you have a counter-proposal?"
Sure, they will decline to employ you because you have a "bad attitude", but hey, you were going to walk out anyway, right?
Well today was a good day! Maybe things like that work out for the better
I had a 3 and a half hour interview today in sanfransico. at a hotel. I don't think I been at such a long interview before. I talked with human resources then I took short quiz and spoke with the assistant director of engineering. I think he was impressed with me well actually he told me he was impressed with me :P Now I get to set up a last interview with the general manager and the director of engineering and I might just have me a job again. That and I'll be making double what I was paid before, work at a cool place as well!
I was thinking about ranting about my former employer and how she was scum and a discrmenationg !@#% that treats people that she deems not equal to herself as @#%$. But I think i'm at peace with it finally and getting this job would be the nail in the coffin if I can come in and brag to a friend there.
That and I have a meeting with the equal employment board still about her behavior
