Crap and hour is better than nothing an hour. At least crap will pay the rent and put the Fruit Loops on the table.

You also have to keep in mind that with the large number of college grads these days willing to work for peanuts, employers now have the luxury to cherry pick applicants.

It is also possible that the company received hundreds of applications/resumes. My room mate has been looking for work over the past month and a good amount of jobs she has applied to received in excess of 300+ applications for one position. Is it not possible that with such a high number of applicants that more than twelve would be qualified?

Sounds reasonable to me.
Yes he did. He said it was for a property manager.

I think they interviewed so many people is the person doing the interviewing is trying to justify their job.

Zero an hour won't pay your rent nor would allow you to keep your fruit loops on the table.
