now guys listen very carefully, this is the hell in manhattan. god knows how they are still in business! i worked there for few months, thank god im out from there. let me tell you whats going on inside ben ash. have you noticed all servers are foreigners? do you know why? because the owner joseph steals money from each waiters paycheck each week (at least $200). many waiters filed complaints to the labor dept, but joseph is very clever. he has his accountant who produces fake paper showing everything is perfect. the schedule is made with lead pencil and erased each week, so you have no proof that you worked 60 hours a week and got paid for 30! at the end of the day your cash out slip is not given to you, the manager keeps it, so you have no proof that you sold about $1000, and at least $ 100 credit card tips should await for you in the paycheck. so after 6 days work when you are expecting about $ 600 tips in the paycheck, you get a shock when you actually receive about $ 300! you tell the GM, he ignores you, he says you calculated wrongly or some crappy story. as well they take busboy money from all the waiters and give it to joseph, the owner! and what he does, each day they collect over $300 as bus boy money per shift, at the end of the week each bus boy get only $ 250 tops for the entire week! and trust me there are only 2 bus boys! rest of the money joseph pays to the deli guy and the cooks. so he pays nothing from his pocket, with waiters money he runs his place.
Cons: owner is a thief, so is the general manager!!
