  • Unless you were employed under a contract expressly forbidding searching for other employment, or were still on probation, they can't just sack you like that in Australia. Contact the Fair Work Ombudsman and see if you have any recourse. Good luck!

  • Well, take their advice! Apply somewhere better and live up to your potential. Worst case scenario go and apply for a different restaurant.
