No Experience Necessary
Question by Mew: Is my job allowed to fire me for making mistakes while in training?
I was employed at an animal resort in NJ and was fired for making mistakes during training. Is this allowed? Is this possible? Aren’t you expected to make mistakes while in training? Isn’t that what training is for? I was told that it was okay and that I should just be more careful next time. I was told that since I’m in training that It’s to be expected. But if it were months down the road then there would be a problem. With that being said is it alright that they fired me?

YES, THEY CAN TERMINATE YOU. YOUR JOB WAS TEMPORARY ATLEAST (AT THE BEST CASE) UNTIL YOU COMPLETED THE TRAINING.
THEY CAN SAY YOU WERE NOT QUALIFIED, AND THAT ALL CAME OUT DURING TRAINING, SO THEY DIDN’T WANT TO WASTE TIME, OR MONEY TO TRAIN SOMEONE WHO WASN’T GOING TO MAKE IT ANY WAY.
THE GUY PROBABLY SAID THAT SO YOU WOULD JUST BE YOURSELF, AND NOT”ON YOUR GAME”
YOUR EMPLOYER IS NOT YOUR FRIEND, AND YOU MUST ALWAYS BE ‘ON YOUR GAME”
SO JUST GO FIND ANOTHER JOB! THEY’RE OUT THERE!
