Thought I found the perfect job only find it wasn't ment to be

I found a part-time job at grooming salon where I was going to be a receptionist, answering calls, setting up appointments and helping out where needed. Well I went to interview for this salon and everything went well I was offered the next day. I started my training where the owner scheduled me for four hours for four days. The first day was I was little nervous , because this was something new to me. When the week finally when I was officially an employee sad that is when things went wrong. I was there early, I ran into the owner who was not suppose to be back until after the holiday showed. I got in with her I started taking down the messages that were left and then I went an check on each client to find out whom their dog last had and where I could fit them in the schedule. I did my best to do this and get back to everyone on top of helping clients check in and out of the salon, however the owner the could see that I was struggling and decided it would best to let me go. ( I wish the owner would have give a little hours for the training time and it's kind hard when the salon is closed on Monday and Tuesday to try and catch up with things), The nicest thing the owner did was add some extra money to the money I made for my training time, I did learn something so as if were to find another job similar to this.

I'm so sorry that happened to you, Harriet! It's normal for a new job to feel overwhelming, but usually employers will give an employee some time to iron out the kinks and get into a flow. It sounds like you were serious about getting your job done right and performing all of your duties and I'm sure you could have fit in given enough time to adjust. Did the owner give you any specific feedback before or after she let you go? It's hard to be rejected, but maybe with some constructive feedback you can make changes that will make the next move more permanent. Best of luck!
