Default Do you negotiate if interviewers salary is set?

What do you do in an interview when the interviewer tells you striaght out; "This position will pay $x,xxx amount,..etc". Do you confront them & still try to negotiate higher salary? Or is that their way of saying, "Dont even try to negotiate becasue thats all we want to pay"?
What do you do?

You can always negotiate. This is the way you do business. You may say that your expectations were for higher salary and if they insist and you are comfortable with the pay you can accept it. There is always room for bargain.

Negotiation on the interview table is not easy. trust me...The best you can come up with is, I was expecting a better pay structure, especially Freshers....Experienced People have the option of bargaining open to them, as Employer want to acquire their services at any cost...Whereas in case of Freshers, there is very lil scope of bargaining as the desperation is more in the candidate....

Negotiation can be difficult for freshers however even I feel that you can always negotiate if you are not happy with the salary that is offered to you. You can try to persuade the employer by telling them that you were expecting more.
