After realizing that he had given me $100, I called the office and his cellphone which he did not answer. So when I got home I e-mailed him and stated that the amount he payed me was not the appropriate amount and it was not what we had discussed. I gave him a time sheet, in which I placed my days and hours worked and the amount he owed me. I also gave him a total and deducted the $100 he gave me.
Joe Ginsberg's reply was, that we agreed that I would receive a meal and transportation stipend (which I never received) for a two-week trial and at the end of the trial we would discuss a salary that would be "good for the both of us", and that my time would be payed for. He continually post-poned the salary discussion, until one day we discussed it.
The salary that we discussed per week was $400. He offered to give me a 1099 tax form, but as far as I'm concerned those tax documents are for freelancers not employees, not administrative assistants.
He seems to do this to many other people. Always trying to get things for free or at discounts.He borrowed rug samples, that were sent to him for free on the account that he would return them on his own FedEx account. Recently, he exploited a non-US citizen on the pretenses that he would sponsor them for their citizenship. The undocumented worker was forced to cancel their appointment to the American Consulate, because Joe Ginsberg decided to take back his offer 3 days before they were to leave the country to the American Consulate.
His office paper work is sloppy and is very difficult to find important office documents and he made fake invoices for his recent tax audit. He does not pay any of his workers on time and the resume file is full of ex-employee resumes who have not returned to work.
I really wish I didn't have to deal with working with an untrustworthy person, I am tired of discussing this matter with him and thinking about it. It's irritating and I'm getting sick of it. Hopefully this will reach people and help them make an informed decision before working at Joe Ginsberg Inc.
