I was watching a run through of the game trying to decide if I wanted it and a side job came up. They played it where if they did not complete it that turn (it said "Once per turn you may" do something to complete it) they discarded it as "defeated"

My question is, do the Side Job cards stay in the 'Verse until completed or they slide into the Combat Zone and you fail to complete it that turn?

According to the rules, it says Side Job cards stay in the 'Verse and slide along like enemies until completed

They are fine in the Verse, but they automatically fail at the end of the turn in which they enter the Combat Zone.

The only way a Side Job is "failed" is if it is sitting (uncompleted) in the Combat Zone at the end of a turn.

Otherwise, it remains sitting in the Verse until it is pushed into the Combat Zone by other cards, and can be attempted (or attempted again) on subsequent turns.

If it is sitting in the Verse (or even in the Combat Zone), and all the Objectives for that episode are completed, then the Side Job is discarded (or "defeated", technically) without suffering the "Failure" penalties.

Even if it's face up? I was under the impression that if a side job was face up and uncompleted when the episode ends, it was counted as a failure...

No, in that case, it is just discarded. I think that several of the Failure effects wouldn't make much sense if they triggered during mission cleanup too.
