Re: Fired while on probationary period

hi

I have a strong feeling that I will be fired tomorrow if I go into work. The senior managers had a meeting about my status and shortly afterwards, I saw my boss sitting with the HR manager.

My 3 month probationary period is over on July 1st. I am not a terrible employee, but I am terribly unconcentrated when one of the gruffer managers comes over to shout at me. He is the one who is driving all of this, but I get along with my boss extremely well.

Any ideas or suggestions?
Just for the record: In Swiss companies is it totally normal that at the end of the probation period your manager sits together with HR and discusses your employment.

You say that you are getting along with your boss extremely well... so: What makes you believe that they want to fire you?

Maybe - just maybe - there is no problem and you are causing one? I am not a specialist on probation periods, but I thought that any form of leave prolongs it? I once agreed with a new employer that I will take an already planned vacation during my first month of work - something normally not done. The probation period was therefore prolonged for two weeks at the end.
