    Just Started Getting Into The Workforce And Was Fired

    A couple of months ago, I was fired from my first job for breaking a company policy. I've kind of moved on about the situation but it still bugs me. The real reason I was fired was the managers did not train me well; they let my co-workers train me. So I didn't get the full...
