They did it on the 27th which was 1 day before the end of the month. Had a few friends deal with this and that’s when they normally do it because they can cut benefits and everything before the new month starts. I’m sorry OP, but your attitude is inspiring! I hope you find a job that you are happy with.

Never, ever, EVER tell anyone you were fired in a job interview unless you're asked specifically if your departure was involuntary. And then make it sound like you were laid off. You don't have to lie, but you don't have to volunteer that information either.
