@Macintosh I too believe everything happens for a reason. Sales is tough and not everyone is cut out for it, if your one who isn’t, now would be the best time to re-evaluate what you want to do. Also you have some time to get setup and settled in your new Apt. Lastly, there is a much better job out there for you and now you get to find it. It will be worth it in the end. 

@Genuine513:  That may be true in BC or all of Canada, but in the US it is determined by the state you live in. I live in NY and here, you can be fired at any time and they don’t even need to give you a reason.

@Genuine513:  

@msgraphics:  

 

msgraphics is correct many states in the US are At-Will Employment states and, Illinois is one of these states.  This means they can fire without any reason or cause as long as it doesn’t violate Title VII and the additional Illinois Human Rights Act (which covers discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, citizenship status, age, marital status, physical or mental handicap, military service or unfavorable military discharge). 

 

@Macintosh:  I’m so sorry to hear about you being laid off.  Make sure that if you need it you file for unemployment benefits!  Many of my friends who were laid off here in FL (also an At-Will state) have gone through the same thing, and were able to use unemployment for a few weeks/months until they got back on their feet and found a new job.

althought damn sad for you, its interesting to see the other side of what happens because quite often Bees post “you should complain to their manager” when people vent about their version of bad customer service – peoples jobs are at risk

hopefully you will find something soon – goodluck

@Macintosh:  Oh sweetheart, Dh was fired this summer, out of nowhere!  They claimed he stole $100.  (Eye roll, ridiculous, something he would never do- no proof, no evidence, nothing!  Plus, he is on camera the entire time.)

Then they had the audacity to tell him, “you are graduating soon, this may be the start of big things for you!”  (WTF!) 

So, I really feel your pain and I am so sorry.  My take is that it likely is not about you!  There are a million reasons she could have a stick up her butt, and it doesn’t mean that it is a reflection on you as a worker, or a person.  She can fire you if her pants don’t fit- there are a lot of people like that!  Hugs.

This could be a blessing in disguise. You may look back at this and chuckle because you will find a job where you are happy. I am also a firm believer that everything happens for a reason

Apply for unemployment insurance right away. You can still qualify even if you are fired, I hope they informed you of your options upon termination.

@TheHandsomeMan:  Look for more of my posts-coming soon!!


More like look to be banned soon…you seem to have made an account for the sole purpose of antagonizing bees and putting others down, which is quite nasty and not at all the purpose of these boards. Do everyone a favor and just go away, you can take your meanness and negativity with you too.

@TheHandsomeMan: Seriously. You pick a wedding website full of highly strung out emotional women to pick on? Weak.

 

To the OP. I’m very sorry 🙁 Im sure it will turn around soon.
