I did at all my jobs.

Personally I prefer to be paid by the hour, but I was always salaried except when working contract.

If they really need someone with your skills/experience- they may accept what ever you will offer.

This strategy has worked for me - in some scenarios
I am horrible about this sort of thing.

What would you suggest I say/write to the hiring manager?

I think it was Nords posted a long time back " I could so do that job " and Mrs. Nords brings him back to reality with " Why ?"
It's still happening, but I'm getting better at declining the honors...

I decided not to pursue the position.
Did not hear back from the hiring manager.


Just as well. They need to get their act together.
