So I put the amount that I desired for a job, and now I don't know if I put both of my min or max amount on there for desired hourly salary. After doing RESEARCH I realized the hourly salary is $2 more than what I put for the desired position thats available. How woud I get the hiring manager to agree with the researched job position hourly salary as to the opposed $2 lesser amount. I don't want to feel cheated because this is the reason im switching jobs! Please HELP!

For the future you always want to ask slightly more than what you actually want.
Say you want $13/hr, you need to ask for $14, because during negotiations it could be knocked down to $13. In the end you got what you wanted, and the hiring manager thinks they won as well.
However, you don't want to ask for too much more or you might not get a call back.1
