Why I Was Fired
It kind of came to a surprise to me, but at the same time it didn't. I was offered a position that I was hesitant to take to begin with, but was told there was great potential. I was let go after two weeks. I was never given a clear reason as to why, and I was told that I did nothing wrong.
What Being Fired Has Been Like
It has been rough. I thought that I was doing what my manager wanted me to, but later it turned out I was totally off base. I went through sadness in the first hour, then anger that they could do this to me, then apologetic that I wasn't the "answer" to all their problems. Now, I see that I am better off not being there anymore.
- Absolutely make sure that you do due diligence in researching a company before accepting a position with them. The websites that say "what it's like to work for so-and-so" might seem like it's an ex employee with a grudge, but there could be (and seems to me, usually is) at least some merit to what they post. And always, ALWAYS, pay attention to the signs from the interview and the meeting with the owner/manager.
