I’m so embarrassed, I was so excited to start this new e-commerce role, my friends and family were so proud of me. I started Friday, everything was fine, I was shown around and was taught a few things. Yesterday I started helping with the Instagram DMs, it was my first time, I was responding to questions about restocks. I mistook some products and accidentally misinformed customers about the date of restock, I really beat myself up about this because I could’ve easily just clarified with a co worker.

Today was really rough, I made two more stuff ups, I canceled a customers order as they wanted to use their store credit but forgot about the 5% cancellation fee, and I also send a follow up email to the wrong customer.

I got home today and opened my phone to discover I’ve been fired by email I’m so embarrassed, and disappointed in myself, I didn’t even last a week.

I think people get so excited about starting a job and wanting to know everything. It is best to take it slow and learn the job during your probation period. I am quality Assurance and the most annoying thing is about new employees giving incorrect information and making mistakes because they want to impress. To me it's the worst. Next time take your time learn the job. Nothing tops efficiency.

If your employer makes a false accusation against you that results in actual harm, such as losing your job, you have the right to file a civil claim against them. This process is likely, to begin with, an EEOC claim.

im working as a dispatch supervisor at the moment, recently theyve been changing my start times like crazy, sometimes mornings other times evening i was originally hired for the morning shift. this week a new dispatch supervisor started and to my surprise she is fulltime & working mornings. now im being told shes going to take my job & im going to be put on the dock but they want me to do graveyard now. mind you ive already told them i cant work those hours because i have children & a little while ago i asked my manager about a full time position and he told me there werent any available, now im being told if i don't accept the night offer im going to get laid off. i dont think this is fair considering i am already trained in both positions and i couldve done that job myself. also she is the wife of one if the employees here. is there anything i can do?

I was hired by a company. I went to work and on day 4 of training I got really sick. I was told to stay ome by my manager because he “personally” didn’t want to get sick. I stayed out as I was told to do. Then I got an email saying they had terminated me because I had missed two days of training. I sent HR an email including the text I had gotten from my manager. I went n on Tuesday to talk to the manager and the HR person tha fired me. Neither of them showed up for work. My badge was taken and I was escorted from the building. It was soooo embarrassing! I have tried to reach out to HR to no avail. I feel that I was discriminated against but I don’t know who to talk to about it. #termination

Last night a new employee walked of the job on her second night they had her working next to me and although I haven’t been working there a full month yet My work habit can be intimidating it’s a fast pace job and I told here to take her time so she can get familiar with the work the manager approached her and asked her why was she letting me do all the work by the time I realized what happened she walked off had I heard what was being said I would have explained to the manager it wasn’t a problem for me and I told her to take her time to get the hang of the job. I think she was fired after walking out. Maybe she knew inside the job wasn’t for her when I heard what happened I felt bad

I'd been a high performer at my current job and got promoted at the beginning of the year. There had been a lot of organizational changes going around and I was told today I was being let go for behavioral issues. Which is total BS. I have no idea what to do so I'm just applying for every job in my area. Please help.

Keep applying for jobs in your area and also, apply for unemployment compensation. If they try to deny you, appeal it. You'll win if they cannot prove their allegations about behavioral "issues". They need a warning notice dated and signed by you to prove it, otherwise, you'll win your appeal and your unemployment. Now, the next hurdle is the reference for the new job. Most companies won't give a reference for an employee, because, again, if they can't "prove" why they let someone go, they can be sued. Most will only verify dates of employment, salary, and name of position or title. The question that will be asked which will tell your prospective employer whether or not you were fired is; "Is she subject to rehire"? A yes means you left on good terms. No means you were shown the door. Therefore, you must be ready to explain the reason why. Leave out the "behavioral issues" bit and only tell them about the "organizational changes" that were being made, which, unfortunately, required a reduction in force. You have no idea about not being subject to rehire. You voiced your disappointment at being told you were to be let go, but as you did so in a professional and cordial manner, you didn't think they'd take such offense! Then, sit back and see what happens. Good luck.
