    Default traverse

    "the floor in between the first floor and the second floor"
    Is it called 'traverse'? Any other words?
    Also, it seems it sometimes refers to people who have
    come up close to the top (like junior executives), but
    not exactly the top. Is it used in that sense too in English?
    Thank you.

    You are probably thinking about a mezzanine. When you take an elevator, a mezzanine (usually marked with letter M) is a level surface just above the ground floor.

    junior executives?

    perhaps "fledgling executives"?, a rookie.
