    Negotiation

    Offer made via a phone call from Complex HR Manager. Salary offered. Thanked him for offer, asked for a day to think things over & call back. Called back with a counter offer. Was told he was "unable to negotiate on salary at this time, but promised me, salary would be reviewed at end of year", which was only a few months away. Salary was NOT reviewed at end of year (was given another excuse). My performance review as high as possible at 6 month mark. Received Max bonus following year, and Max salary increase.

The interview wasn't for a particular position, they were more or less just gathering students resumes that were graduating in may.
