I came across an ad where a cool agency was hiring; I applied, sent in my resume portfolio > went to the interview. They wrote me back stating they wanted to give me a try at a 1 month freelance relationship at my hourly rate. I said OK, I'm in; the first day - I was introduced to everyone and then shortly after everyone got really short; and just shoved me to work. They uttered a low mention 'oh your contract, slightly' while I was looking around wondering. "Go, Go, GO". I worked for 4 days; and nada. "Just go, tons of stuff to do"
I'm dumb, I realize. Needless to say; I stopped working. Is there any chance I could get paid for those days I had worked?

Did you send them an invoice yet? If you were just working for them as an independent freelancer you will need to invoice them for your services. They will need an invoice in order to pay you. That might be a start.
That depends on the circumstances. If you hire a full time employee then fire them you will probably have to pay them. If you hire a freelancer (as the poster said he was) then it really depends on the contract. In many contracts, there is some performance language that may allow the client to dispute the quality of the work and hence not pay.
I have a feeling more went on in this situation than the single quote that the original poster wrote, which was " 'oh your contract, slightly'". It's hard to interpret that one
