At the same time, does someone who doesn't work hard/doesn't put in effort show up 50 hours a week? Id think that someone who's there for so long would be dedicating their time to working hard to get the job..

All these downvotes on people making a valid point. Just because you put in the time, doesn't mean you put in the effort. OP may have tried, but their supervisor may not have been satisfied with their job performance.

I have a friend who has complained about her bosses being out to get her "no matter how hard she worked" at literally every job she had. Eventually I realized part of it must've been something with her - and I was right. Eventually we ended up working together, and I found she would complete assignments very quickly, but they often had numerous errors in them. So technically she worked "hard" but the work was sloppy. The two aren't mutually exclusive.

Anyway, sorry you got fired, OP. I'd just try to take it as a learning experience, reflect on whether there were any things you could've done better, and take the lesson to your next job.

Also, if you complained about it the whole time, or acted like you were too good to be doing whar you were supposed to I'm sorry but you deserve it. otherwise fyl.

It's possible they wanted to let you go and were looking for any excuse to do it. They don't deserve your work ethic if that's the case.. Soon you'll find yourself a real job where you'll get paid and rewarded for your hard work.

Ya, this just sounds like another FML where the employers were looking for an excuse to get rid of you and just made up a reason. I don't get why people sometimes don't tell you the real reason they're firing your or letting you go. You think it would make more sense to give them the real reason so they know what they did wrong and can fix it for next time.

Except if they're just looking for any excuse, that means they don't have a real reason. And you need just cause to fire someone, so then they have to come up with an excuse that sounds valid. If they told the truth ("We just don't want you here. Sorry") then they could get in big trouble.
