Has anyone been fired from a job on the first day? I was on

Has anyone been fired from a job on the first day? I was on November 7, 2022 and was given a lie for the reason.. This doesn't count as a ding on my resume, being one day, It has left me wondering why a job was brought into my life for one day. What purpose did that serve? i'll never know.

@Pillsie I was going to comment congrats and I totally get the fact that you are def 'over qualified' for a hostess job. I'm around your age and I struggle with trying to figure out what I can even do after being let go during covid. I struggle with the whole embarrassment feeling as well. I don't think my grown child understands. The rejections are def an 'ageism' thing even if they never mention age.
Maybe just view this job as a stepping stone, keep putting out your resume and networking as much as possible. Who knows, if you are chatty, accomodating to customers you might get to know regulars and they may possibly link you to something. Talk up your skills, try to engage w energy.
You never know.

@Littlesis7I I do have a lot I need to get done to start looking training courses and, of course, still job search for an admin office job. Who knows what will happen. And I definitely agree that age is a factor. I was working a temp assignment that ended when the shutdown took place as well.
