* Alternately PlayedForLaughs and PlayedForDrama in the episode of ''Series/KnightRider'' which introduced KITT's PsychoPrototype KARR: At one point KARR has to go through the drive-thru of a circus-themed joint, complete with a cartoonishly bulbous ringmaster's head for an order box and a lengthy welcoming script the poor shlub at the cash register has to recite. This part is played for laughs; but KARR, who has no idea what any of this is, freaks out and crashes through the menu/order box, which is played for drama when Michael shows up to investigate and is arrested for vandalism.

* Creator/SamAndMickey have Skipper get a job at [=McBurgers=], a fast food restaurant with a manager who doesn't really seem to care about customers' health (French fries come in three portion sizes: Large, Extra Large, and Jumbo. The lattermost comes with 17x as many fries as an Extra Large portion, and a diabetes pamphlet of unspecified usefulness.) or work ethics (at the end, [[spoiler:Skipper bribes the manager into letting her stay, even after her parents/"big sister and her ex" Barbie and Ken cause a scene.]]).

* ''LightNovel/TheDevilIsAPartTimer'': The story's entire premise is that an EvilOverlord accidentally strands himself and his top demon general on Earth while pulling a VillainExitStageLeft. While the general tries to find a way back home, the Demon King (Maoh) gets a job at the local [[WcDonalds MgRonalds]] to support them. However, the job isn't depicted as hellish at all, and Maoh ends up on the management fast-track because of his empathy for the customers, level-headed mentoring of his co-workers, and ability to stay cool under pressure. Much of the show's humor is derived from the juxtaposition of the two worlds, such as Maoh giving a "[[TodayXTomorrowTheWorld Today the night-shift manager, tomorrow the world!]]" speech with a completely straight face.

* This is the premise of ''LightNovel/TheDevilIsAPartTimer'', where the titular demon lord, or Maou, finds himself stranded on Earth and has to eke out a living in modern day Japan while searching for a way back to his world (hopefully). His solution? Work in [[WcDonalds MgRonalds]] and climb through its ranks! It is, however, a rather decent place to work at, relatively speaking, especially after he [[BenevolentBoss becomes assistant-manager]].

* Fast food restaurants are all over the world. In America in particular, they are a common first job for high school students due to their non-existent job skill requirements.



* Some teachers have been known to hand out applications to fast-food restaurants back with failed tests.
* The [=McJob=] is a euphemism for a sub-minimum wage dead-end job calling for no skills, offering no hope for advancement, in dirty and sweaty conditions, with no employment rights and involving hard and often demeaning physical work for little pay. it is no accident the name evokes working in grisly fast-"food" establishments.
