Why would HR ask me for my feedback about the interview?

Rank: Monkey | 45

Hi everyone,

Had my final round of interview on Friday which I thought went very well. I got very positive feedback for the previous stages. My salary requirements are bit higher than what they have budgeted. I was expecting to hear back on Friday but didn't.

This morning I got an email from HR asking how I felt the interview went and how I feel about the role. Then she said they are speaking to the team today and will let me know. HR has never been this nice to me, what's going on?

It's a trap. Like the Stepford Wives. You should let them know you're not interested, while you still get away alive.

I would guess they know the salary is a little low / know that you are somewhat skeptical about taking the job should they offer it to you. If they sense that (seems like they do) they are likely uneasy about offering you the job, so they are looking for some confirmation about whether or not you are really interested, hence giving you the opportunity to tell them whether or not you are really interested in the job via giving feedback on the interview.
