Tacoma, WA asked in Employment Law for Oregon

Q: Is being let go for not being a good fit for the company legal if you got along with all your coworkers?

I was fired on Jan,16 2020 for not being a good fit for the company even though I got along with everyone I worked with. I had been working for them since May 2019 with no issues at all no complaints. I was even sent a text and an email from my bosses on the 16th stating I was scheduled to work and to confirm I got the messages. But when I got to work that evening my bosses were standing in the parking lot when I arrived and approached me stating they were letting me go and that I wasn't a good fit for there company and when I asked what made me a bad fit they said we're just gonna leave it at that. I was even asked to step inside to a conference room or anything just left standing outside wondering what I did wrong. Everything was fine before we had a meeting on Monday I worked Tuesday and Wednesday with no issues and by Thursday I was fired with no explanation as to why I understand were an at will state but how can they do that someone who didn't do anything wrong.
