My name is “CAPTAIN.”

Dear Captain, Why must you always be called Captain? When all other officers and crew use their name. Captain is your rank and everyone knows that and it is really weird you’d preferred to be greeted as Captain on and off the boat.

Do you think your above everyone else? And why can’t you come to work each day, do your duties and play a role in daily routines. Help train, > more

Re-Negotiating a Salary after accepting an offer

I know its low as I do bring extra skills to the table along with 3 years experience and having done shipyard work before. I accepted the offer only to think i could re-negotiate the salary once I've proved my value to the Captain after a 60 day probation period and by accepting it insured I got the job. How would one go about it, and is it possible to re-negotiate a salary > more
