When most of people hear the word ” Crew member ” either from ship or plane they immediately think WOW that’s a nice job, certainly it is however just like other jobs in the world, has it’s ups and downs. Crew members certainly and I repeat work very, very hard to keep up their job and eventually get paid, ship’s Companies as any other customer service industry focus on their guest’s satisfaction however ship’s Companies I believe are more focus than others although 100’s of ships sail daily with thousands of guests that keep on coming on board I guest it’s because of the service given to them on board.
Crew member are the one that makes that possible however I do believe they only receive words compliments, like, you’re the best, congratulations on your job yesterday, thanks a lot for your hard work, you’re a star, and so much comforting words which are not bad however crew members wants to see ” cash ” in their hands while others are the one to receive it.
Crew members should get some kind of gratification on the same way although some Companies has what is called Employee of the month and Employee of the Year however I believe all employees play an important role in the Company and all deserve to be given something in return more than their salary which is what they actually work for however salary is not so much for such job to perform although is better than the one this employees provably gets back home , it’s not as it should be and on top of that is a lot to do , is not easy at all.
I don’t want to be taken wrong on my gratification idea, I don’t mean give away all your revenue otherwise what do you work for then, right. But when a crew member hears that a Company had so much zeros of revenue ( 000,000,000 ) and they are receiving some kind of bonus which they actually can’t touch until the Company decides when hey will give you certain quantity then is not a gift, if I was given something that I have no control over it, then is not mine, also some Companies says we will get your crew areas with better furniture and more comfort and so much other things then is not for the crew is for your self because the Company is not mine, you are getting your ships ready for future generations and I can’t take it with me , Can I? NO. Then is not mine.
When you share a pie among others the less people the bigger is the slice to share however if you slice the pie on smaller pieces everyone can take a piece and there will be more happy people in the world.
