Hi Chantelle,

Sorry to hear you were fired. It sounds a bit unprofessional that she would fire you over Facebook. I assume you were getting paid? Iím not sure about Canada, but in the UK, we need to get paperwork when we have been fired, is this the same for you?

Itís good that you asked why, but I feel her explanation wasnít that clear to you. What was your contract? It may be that she feels there is less business now, and has less need for your service. If it was on a more structured and not seasonal basis, I would ask her again.

Usually, you would have warnings before getting fired. If you havenít had any warnings, then you may be able to get your job back in the future.

Hope things work out for you soon!

Not that this helps at all, but lots of retail jobs in the US are "at-will" employers, meaning they can hire, fire or do anything to your job status without warning and without reason.

I'm really sorry to hear about that Chantelle. If I was in your position, I'd send an email to HR or somebody higher up than your manager and tell them that you enjoyed your experience and are disappointed that your manager took a very unprofessional route of hiring you.

Who the heck fires over Facebook? That's not right to you and that manager sounds like a low-life.

Hello, I can understand why you feel stressed out. I can tell that you did not do much wrong at all. Try to find a new job.

This is just a thought but, although you've asked her why she fired you, have you asked her to give you some employee feedback? You can't know exactly what you did wrong if people give vague explanations such as 'it wasn't working out for the store'. This doesn't tell you much of anything and nor does it help you to improve your service for the future. If she's even remotely decent, she'll give you a few tips on what you did wrong and how it can be changed. If you show enough interest, maybe she'll see that you genuinely are keen to work and want to improve your skills so may even re-hire you.

There's a good chance that they fired you over not wanting full-time status or the budget wasn't working out. Or sometimes a friend of a friend needs a job so they want to hire someone else. That happens more than you know.

Is that even legal? I have a hard time believing that HOW she fired you is legal. I would speak to someone (ex. booster juice head office as well as someone from a job-hiring place) who can discuss legality with you.

That's extremely unprofessional way to let someone go...
