Getting Fired from a Job

Recently I have been fired from my very first job and what they did and how they did it might surprise you.

A few weeks ago, I know not that long, I started at my first job. I applied at Five Guys in my town and I got hired. I worked for a few short weeks but then something unexpected happened. They fired me, but for a reason unknown. Something to know about me is when it comes to working and doing labor for money I like to try my hardest and get the job done to the best of my abilities. I like to think that I was a good employee. I never got written up, the managers loved me and so did the employees. When I showed up to my last shift there was no mention of my termination. The next day I was not informed of my termination yet either. But yesterday, March 1st, I got a TEXT MESSAGE from my manager saying that my services are no longer needed. They could’ve told me when I was done working my last shift but they waited two days and told me over text. No anger towards the managers or the people that work there, they are all very good people, I just personally think that they could’ve communicated better and told me the last day that I worked. When they sent the text of my termination, I was confused. I read the text many times thinking it was a joke but it wasn’t. When they terminated me they didn’t give me a reason why, and they still haven’t. I know it has only been a day as of writing this but still. I don’t think it is legal to fire someone without reason.

When you get fired from a job it is heartbreaking. You put in your time and effort and for them to say it wasn’t good enough breaks your heart. You feel like you weren good enough. But when you get the feedback of why you got fired you know what not to do the next time and what to improve on. When jobs fire you and you don’t get a reason why, you feel lost and you have no clue what you did wrong. You don’t know what to improve on and what do do better for your next job. If you are going through the same expierence I am, then you know how I feel. If you ever get fired from a job just know they are missing out on a good worker so keep your head up and look for bigger and better ventures.
