Having been in sales for the majority of my career (in one way or another) I have learned not to "fear" those with bigger titles.
It's served me well, especially during prospecting for other companies and my own.
Here's a piece of advice that works wonders:
When you apply for a job, try reaching out directly to the hiring manager. If you can't tell who it is, do a little investigating on the company's website, LI, or even on FGB.
Send either an email or a message with a unique cover letter. Your effort and creativity will immediately stand out.
Will you hear back from every one of them? Nope. But I bet a few will respond and you'll be added to the top of the candidate pool.
Would you dare to try this??
I have some cover letter tricks up my sleeve. Feel free to message me if you need some help in this area.

I am not quite sure what to put this in the comments.
But at my work, they pay the males more than they pay the females, even if the females have degrees. I have three degrees. The two men that I work with get more then I do. The one that just got hired gets $2 more an hour then I do & has no experience or degrees, the other one has been there one month longer then me & is handsome & never even finished school with a very shady past & gets $3 more an hour then I do. I have also worked in this industry for over 25 years. I’m very upset about this & have already approached management about it twice. Any suggestions?

I ran across this article on salary negotiation.
The tips come from an Indiana University professor of business law and management. I thought I would share since I've seen posts in the past asking how to negotiate.

I have been working for a company for over 7 years.
I'm a valued worker and am excellent at what I do. I am an accounts manager and I spend a lot of time working with customers and ensuring the accounts of sales projects are correct and in scope of their contracts. However, our workplace is toxic. The salesMEN are very demanding and demeaning of their coworkers. They are non-communicative, demanding, and rude. The boss seems to be more interested in money from sales than the moral of the overall workers. I have had confrontations with a couple of these salesmen as I try to provide support to them. My boss just told me he wants me to work from home because they feel I'm am difficult to work with. I am concerned about not being able to fully complete my job tasks now as I am isolated from my co-workers. Even though me boss has provided me with computers, dual monitors, phone and a printer at my home, it feels like I'm being pushed out.

I have a hearing in my county with the Department of Labor and the School System where I worked.
I was a clerk who was forced to resign so they wouldn’t have to pay unemployment. I appealed and now three years later, I have a hearing. Any suggestions on the best way to handle these jerks ?
