New to the trucking industry....Hurt and Highly Disappointed....Was I Fired?

I just recently completed trucking school on 06/2014 got my tanker, hazmat and twic card. I was called by a recruiter from Comar CTL division which is the tanker division to orientation. The orientation was from Tuesday-Friday 8am-5p,m according to the information provided by the recuiter. However that wasn't the case, but that was okay. On the first day we were required to take the drug test. They failed to mention that not only were you to do urine testing but also you had to have your head shaved and they take an ample amount of hair. The first day they took my hair which I wasn't happy about because I felt they should tell you that before they offer you the job not surprise you with that,.. but I was already there and had given my notice on the current job I had I felt subject to take the test, they didn't take enough hair so the called me back two days later and tell me they need more of my hair. Now I am a African American female with very fine hair. As any women knows especially women with fine hair black or other you don't want your hair cut too much nor your DNA out there like that, but although I wined a little I let them cut more of my hair because they said they didn't get enough the first time.

I failed to mention that the recruiter said they would pay for a round trip ticket to Savannah, Ga the cab fee to the hotel and the cost of the rooms. She had me scheduled for check out on Saturday 6/28/2014 because the class didn't end until Friday 6/27/2014 5pm but she had the bus ticket for 5:10pm on the 27th which was conflicting so I tried all week while I was there to get it corrected. So I finally just told her I would have someone come to Savannah to pick me up and she said okay just mail the bus ticket back and we will reimburse you the travel time back home. so I am thinking everything is setteled.

So on the next day which is the last day Friday I get to class thinking my arrangements back home is settled to be called out of class and was told I need to go back to the hotel and get my things because they were checking me out now. So I explained to the lady in HR that I was booked in the hotel until the next day and that I made arrangements to get home the next day. They told me they didn't care that I had to get my things now and if I stayed another day that I would have to pay for the room. I told her that I didn't think that was fair or right because the mistake wasn't on my part but they said too bad. So they took me back to the hotel after check out which was at 11:00 and the hotel manager had locked me out of my room. Now during this time I am on the phone trying to see how I am going to get home so I go down stairs and ask that he unlock the room so I can get my things he said he wasn't going to talk to me until I get off the phone. I told him I wasn't getting off the phone just give me the key so I can get my things. I get back to the class assigned my trainer for the following Monday when I get a phone call from safety telling me the hotel manager said I cussed him out and therefore I am not a good fit for the company and was told to get out of the class. This lady didn't care that I was out of town with no transportation and the fact of the matter is I didn't cuss at all at the manager of the hotel I just told him I wasn't getting off the phone just give me the key so I can get my things...was I fired based on the lie of a hotel manager and the mistake of the company? Is this the type of company I would want to work for? Do I report to work on the day that the orientation trainer told me to before I got the phone call? I don't understand what happened.
