You don't negotiate until after they provide a number. Then, whatever the number ask for money.

How much to ask for depends on your experience, the industry, your special skills, etc.

Check online. salary.com at least gives a general idea...may not be perfect but will give you an idea of if $10 is normal or if $30/hr is normal. Most companies will be close to the range - they usually have to remain pretty close to market standards.

Also look at similar open positions in your area - some companies DO post the salary information.

Not a concern with the OP, but I've had positions where they ask for a salary upfront before the first interview, or during a phone screening or its equivalent. It can be a range, but if you deflect it without giving them anything, they don't want to get burned by unrealistic expectations and just move on.
