** [[https://garfield.com/comic/2017/01/20 This]] strip has Garfield and Jon eat at Binky Burger, where the clerk us dressed up as Binky the Clown's friend Biff and looks ''very'' depressed. Jon asks if he doesn't like his job, and the guy replies with "''You'' try to get a date in this get-up, pal".

But the fast-food joint seems to deliberately go out of its way to torture the unfortunate teenagers (and/or unlucky adults) who work there. Which includes the [[BadJobWorseUniform ridiculous outfit they are required to wear on the job]] -- a silly hat, featuring a [[LetsMeetTheMeat cartoonish version of what they serve]], is almost a given, along with HappinessIsMandatory, and this is usually enforced by a store manager who fits the StupidBoss stereotype to a Q. [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment Thus the fast food restaurant has the image of a]] FateWorseThanDeath. Kids or teens may be threatened with working there forever if they [[TragicDropout don't finish high school]], don't attend college, and/or [[BookDumb don't do well in school]]. (This is, however, a CyclicTrope; during economic downturns, even people who [[HardWorkFallacy "did everything right"]] can still find themselves working in or applying to these types of positions.)

* ''CarlSquared'' had the pirate-themed Buccaneer Burger, complete with humiliating costumes. Unsurprisingly, C2 thought it was great place to work.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', "Employee Of the Month", Beast Boy goes to work at "Mega Meaty Meat", a restaurant wherein everything from shakes to fries is apparently made of meat. A staunch vegetarian ("I've ''been'' most of those animals!"), Beast Boy sticks with it (in the hopes of winning the moped being offered as prize for "Employee of the Month"), and discovers that the eatery is actually a front for a sentient tofu monster from space. No, really!
** Suffice to say, it just gets weirder from there. [[WordOfGod Even the creators have no idea what was going on in that episode.]]

* The ''Luann'' Comic strip featured the title character's older brother Brad working at Weenie World twice. The first time was as a teen during the 1990's while the 2nd time was during his layoff from his career as a firefighter.
** Averted following his second stint when Brad was replaced by best friend T.J. As a member of the Weenie World family, T.J. managed to make her boss's life a living hell by doing everything better than she could including successfully upselling customers.

* In a flashback sequence in ''GIJoeRenegades'', we learn that Duke briefly worked the drive-through of a fast food joint between high-school and the Army. Flint rubs it in when he isn't bragging about the tackle he'd landed on Duke at a football game that won his school a state championship. Subverted at the end of the scene when Flint sees Duke leaving for home on crutches; knowing the injury is his fault, he realizes he's being cruel and offers Duke a ride.
