I was hired in a company for the title of Front-end Developer. I am qualified as because I have skills and experience with regards to doing front-end stuff. But it turns out that the work will be Full Stack. The employer was reasoning out that after your done with front-end task, I must do backend stuff as well so I would not be idle on may day's shift.

Is it my fault if I already done with my respective task and just mingle with random task of backend stuff that is not my real skills or forte?

I can understand and know PHP & MySQL, but I am not guaranteed to finish the task quickly compared to my backend counterpart in doing their task.

To cut the story short, they terminated my contract and claim that I am not performing well with my duties and responsibility, though most of the Front-end stuff I was assigned were already done and deployed.

There's no justice in this typical world of start-ups and noobie HR people that always one sided and they always say that it's their policy and they cannot do anything with regards to the incident happened to me.

    Awww that really sucks. When they terminated your contract, have you tried to reason out with them? If so, what did they say?

    Just out of curiosity, did you mind doing the backend stuff? If you don't like it and they push it on you, that's already a big sign.

    @ilechuks73 yeah, I did not anticipate that this will happen.. Even I did all my effort and finish my task on front-end, they seems not satisfy to what I did.. It's just for 3 out of 8 projects, the 5 were turnover to the client done and complete, the remaining 3 which involves heavy backend stuff did not end well, as my immediate head expects that I will be able to finish all of them.

    @Wintercrest Yes I already did. I even talked with the HR people but they seem to be puppets of the company that whatever the head said, they'll just follow it. My immediate head just mentioned that it was the owner's direction to relieve me not being satisfied on the work I did, and he's got nothing to do about it. It seems that I was surrounded with irrelevant people, and a heavy politics is living with them.

    @LHofman Yes I did.. Though I explained to them that I can do some basic backend stuff, my time finishing the task will compromise the deadlines as frontend stuff was the thing that I am worth of. My immediate head was already grilled by the owner so he himself just give unclear instructions and just blaming me for all of the progress I have done, he also cleared his name for every project, that he doesn't know or it's up for us what to say to the owner, in other words, he always saved his ass.

    @Mb3leb Yes surely their loss.. Actually they are now having hard time onboarding developers as once new ones get familiarize on their system, they just resigned.. and the nonsense HR just use they front-end keywords on their job post just to attract applicants but the position will be totally full stack of course.
