Olore said the sacking came a week after she made the appeal to HR.

How Olore was sacked

Replying an inquisitive netizen, Olore narrated how she lost her job on the following Friday after she asked for a better remuneration.

Olore said she was drowsy during a meeting on Monday and by Thursday, the HR told her she was giving attitude over something she was denied.

On Friday, she was asked to leave.

“See! It was exactly a week after I asked. I asked on a Friday and the following Monday, I was drowsy at a meeting. By Thursday, HR said “I was giving attitude because of something I was denied”.

“Was asked to leave on Friday effective immediately,” she said.

The young lady, however, revealed that she got a better job, but that getting it wasn’t easy.

“I legit slept on job sites, and brushed up my skills. Currently taking classes alongside my current job sef.

“Also ear hustle. Talk to anyone and everyone you know about looking for a job. There’s no shame in it,” Olore added.

Lady fired on her first day of work

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a lady got sacked on her first day of work at an airport.

The surprised woman, however, noted that she wasn’t the only one sacked as the company also fired some other staff.

In her video, she revealed that the company had warned against bringing guns to the work premises. However, the company already got fed up and decided to fire all the new staff instead after one of them defaulted on the rule.
