Supervisor said I couldn’t have week off for vacation this summer bc another coworker of higher seniority asked off the same week and two people can’t go on vacation at the same time because of staffing. But this coworker that asked off works different shift than me? He works 1st shift I work second. We have a total of 8 workers and no more than 4 work a day. can easily be covered. This has never been a problem until this year (we got a new supervisor). we’re used to being short staffed anyway

Hi! Does anyone have advice on negotiating base salary for a role _when you know there are salary bands_?

I have the offer from a non-FAANG (via recruiter), and the hiring manager told me on the side that the number m is at the top of their range as far as he knows.

I’m pretty solid with negotiations but have never been in this type of situation before. If anyone has tips that would be great.

PS would really like to get base number up rather than PTO/equity/other benefits! ty!
