It sounds like she was trying to be nice, to some degree. Sometimes lack of experience is actually fine - the person will adapt and learn quickly and will catch up to where they would be with more experience. Sometimes they struggle to do that and wind up overwhelmed or just not doing a great job. It sounds like she thought it was going to be the former situation but it turned out to be the latter, and that really sucks for you, OP, I'm sorry :(

You put how long you worked somewhere on your resume, so this job won't look good because of the short time worked there. It'll probably actually be best not to include it at all.

8 - But you still have to put if they can contact your previous employer. Saying they can't contact your previous employer on a job you just got fired from recently would raise some serious red flags to them.

Pretty much this. Some people will be willing to take on people with less than the required experience for lower level jobs, but those employees have to show a willingness and ability to learn quickly or else they won't last long.

That same exact thing happened to me 2x earlier this year. Both times they said I was doing good considering I had no experience in that field but they needed someone that knew everything NOW not someone they had to train. Biggest waste of time ever

"We thought we could train you on the job, but apparently the state wants all applicants to have some fancy schooling before they can become a neurosurgeon."
