* Despite the kids being too young to get a job at local place Slausen's on ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'', it doesn't mean that the joint is free of squeaky-voiced teens (voiced by ''DanCastellaneta'', of course).

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', we have Beach Citywalk Fries. Lars acts like this type of worker at the Big Donut.
** In "Greg The Babysitter", Vidalia gets a job at a t-shirt shop with a uniform that includes a t-shirt with a silly face on it, in order to take care of and support baby Sour Cream.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' 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.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', we have ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'':
** Played with and ultimately subverted concerning Peedee's job at
Beach Citywalk Fries. Fries: It's a FamilyBusiness (he'd be too young to work there otherwise), so he's really doing it because he's TheDutifulSon. Though he's introduced being miserable with his work in "Frybo", it's really just because the job he's given is [[BadJobWorseUniform to promote the store wearing a mascot costume]]. After he gets a counter position (and the Frybo costume is destroyed), Peedee ''loves'' his job [[{{Workaholic}} almost too much]].
**
Lars acts like this type of worker and Sadie work at the Big Donut.
** In "Greg
Donut, the food place Steven visits the most. Though it doesn't seem a terrible place to work, they're implied to have kept working there for years only because, [[BelligerentSexualTension despite appearances, they enjoy each other's company]]. Once Lars is out of town [[spoiler:and off-planet]], Sadie has to run the store herself. The Babysitter", Vidalia gets a job at a t-shirt shop with a uniform that includes a t-shirt with a silly face on it, in order to take care of [[CriticalStaffingShortage workload]] and support baby Sour Cream.
[[GoMadFromTheIsolation loneliness]] really get to her, and she calls it a dull waste of her youth. Despite this, Sadie keeps at it purely to maintain as sense of normalcy [[spoiler:before quitting entirely]].
* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode ''Stranger "Stranger than Fan Fiction'', 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.

** The episode "Grande Size Me" brings back Bueno Nacho. Ron insists that their junk food is "healthy" and [[Film/SuperSizeMe decides to eat only their meals for a month]]. He ends up becoming not only fat and unhealthy, but turning into a horrible monster due to a villain's latest plot requiring someone with the body chemistry of [[ContrivedCoincidence someone who's eaten nothing but Bueno Nacho food for an extended period of time]]. Humorously, this was the show creators' way of [[TakeThat getting back]] at Disney, who forced them to do a [[AWeightyAesop "healthy eating"]] episode.

* TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness RPG ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' has the burger chain O'Tolleys as a subsidiary to the big bad corp Pentex. While many of its restaurants are relatively normal, there are also some which slip evil spirits or [[ImAHumanitarian the other white meat]] in the burgers, and transform their employees into spiritually possessed freaks. All of them, however, conform to the standards laid out by this page. As the splatbooks says: In most part-time jobs, teenagers learn vital business skills, decision making and other abilities that will help them in life. While working for O'Tolleys, they learn to make burgers. Period.

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]]. Or if they only obtain ADegreeInUseless. (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.)

* ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'' has the Cricket Burger. Since terraforming is still in its early stages for the planet the story's set on, they have to use insect meat for the foreseeable future. Mr. Kornada, as a punishment for a particularly brutish stunt he tried to pull, is sentenced to a thousand days of working there. However, he's to receive a work grade above "Average" for it to count...

* ''BillyVsSnakeman'' has Burgerninja (not actually staffed by ninja, originally; the player sort of gets in by accident), where the food is disgusting and the customers are horrible. The biggest challenge when you run the till is to keep yourself from killing the customers in a fit of rage. Eventually you end up burning the place down with a giant robot and taking your coworkers to start a pizza shop instead, which works so much better. (The food is better and your manager allows you to stab problem customers.)
