Last week I started a new job. I was honest about my skills and received a ton of mixed messages ---one day it was "you will get the hang of things in time" and then the next day the owner was breathing down my neck! She just called me on a Sat to fire me! Did she do a favor though? It was a small business, they paid ok, no bennies, hired me pretty quickly I have to say....I am ticked off right now and upset as well...

Most companies give 90 days adjustment period. To understand operating protocols. Consider this a blessing.

I consider this a blessing for you. Hang in there you will find something better with benefits.

Don't be upset this was probably a rinkydink outfit anyway never work anywhere that doesn't provide health insurance paid vacation,sick leave etc. To many employers out there that will. I made up my mind when I was 18 no benefits and decent pay,no me being there.

It could be a blessing in disguise. I worked for an international company, paid great but, had sketchy business practices. Here in Florida, they can let you go with no reason. I saw the BS writing on the wall 2 months in. Trust me, they may have done you a favor. Something BIGGER and BETTER will come to you!

Same thing happened to me but was a National company. Worked for 2 months, was told weekly that I was doing great then on April 4 was sent a teams request for 3pm. I went and as it started the HM and my supervisor showed up and read me my termination notice verbatim off a script. Wouldn't answer my questions and said it was due to "restructuring". I was shocked, stunned, and very very angry. I'm just now recovering from the soul crushing disappointment and depression it gave me. It was cold and they lied to me. How do I keep motivated to look for a job and work when this happens. I have no idea.
