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 "did everything right" can still find themselves working in or applying to these types of positions.)

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyGriendshipIsMagic'' episode ''Stranger than Fan Fiction'', a background pony running a juice bar is seen, sporting a silly hat and an expression that can cut glass. She only cracks a smile when it's evident someone's having a worse day than she is.

Similar workers can be found at SuckECheeses. For the (not-really) "alternative", see SoulSuckingRetailJob. The next step up the "ladder" is working at a KitschyThemedRestaurant.

* 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 manager]].

* The ''Franchise/{{Shadowchasers}}'' stories introduces the Pandora's Box, an up-and-coming chain of fast food places with a fantasy RPG theme. Subverted in that, while very trite, it's not a bad place, and is very popular among Shadows, attracting them as customers and employees (especially unskilled ones in the latter case; Shadowkind like kobolds and goblins have found that they can make money working at Pandora's Box simply by being themselves.)
** In the currently in-progress fic ''Fanfic/ShadowchasersConspiracy'', an important character actually works at a Pandora's Box, and doesn't exactly like it, calling the place a "grease pit" (although she does appreciate the employee discount). It's implied that's she's doing it to earn money while focusing on an important plot-related task.
