None of the questions were altogether difficult. The only thing that alarmed me was when they offered me an hourly rate of $18/hour. To me this seemed to be very low and I expressed that and was then asked what I thought an acceptable rate was. Unfortunately I didn't expect to talk salary during the phone interview though I'm glad we did because the low hourly rate is what ultimately convinced me that it wasn't the job for me.
