How much flexibility is there on new hire hourly pay?

I just interviewed for a Loss Prevention Officer position. I currently am a loss prevention officer for another company (3 years experience) and I am making $15 an hour, so I put $15 down for desired pay on the application.  
The LP Manager and Assistant Manager at Fry's said the pay for LP caps at $16.50 an hour and they offered me $13. I said $14 is the minimum I would accept, and they said they couldn't do it. So I said how about $13.50, and they said the max they could do is $13.25. They gave me a conditional job offer at $13.25 an hour, but I don't think I will take it.  
How much leeway/flexibility do hiring managers really have at Fry's? Would $14 or more for this position be totally out of the question here? Or are they just playing hard ball?

Fry's is not the place you want to go to negotiate a salary, unless you're going for an executive-level position. You can accept their offer if you're currently unemployed and keep looking for something better.

Wait. You are going to negotiate pay at a minimum wage shop? Okayyy....
