* The [=McJob=] is a euphemism in Britain 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.

* 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/"older sister and her ex" Barbie and Ken cause a scene.]]).

* After failing to win the WWE Championship back from RandyOrton and being harassed by Orton's hand-picked goons CodyRhodes and [=Ted DiBiase=] in the summer of 2009, TripleH decided to get D-Generation X back together. He journeyed to Texas to find ShawnMichaels (who was in the middle of a TenMinuteRetirement from WWE at this point) only to find the "Heart Break Kid" working as a chef in a corporate cafeteria. Michaels at first claims that he's happy with his new job and doesn't want to return to WWE, even though [[BadBoss his boss is a sadistic martinet]] and the boss's [[BrattyHalfPint bratty prepubescent daughter]] takes advantage of her position as DaddysLittleVillain to constantly annoy and even abuse the employees. HBK finally decides to rejoin DX after realizing that he isn't any good at being a chef, burning his white chef's hat and [[TalkToTheFist kicking his boss in the face mid-tirade]].

* WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants works at such a restaurant called the Krusty Krab, but he loves the job. (Exactly how the grill and deep fryer he uses can work, seeing as it's underwater, [[CartoonPhysics is never explained.]]) Squidward, on the other hand, hates it with a passion. (Of course, Mr. Krab, who runs the place, is not only a MeanBoss, his greed often fuels the plot of an episode.)

* ''Film/WestBankStory,'' the 2007 Academy Award winner for Best Short Film, involves what amounts to [[SeriousBusiness Dueling Falafel Fools]]--the Kosher King and the Hummus Hut--and has the young, beautiful Hummus Hut employee (the owner's sister) fall in love with an Israeli soldier, making for a pretty little musical parable about [[ArabIsraeliConflict Israeli-Palestinian Conflict]]. Yes. Did we mention that it's a parody/reworking of ''Theatre/WestSideStory''?

* ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryCoven'': One of Queenie's worst experiences was working in a cheap fried chicken place like this before she came to New Orleans. In the SeasonFinale, her fate when sent to Hell is serving customers there until the end of time. [[spoiler: (She gets out eventually, along with most of the cast.)]]

* In the first volume of the ''Manga/YuGiOh'' manga, Yugi and Jounouchi want to go out for lunch at Burger World, but Anzu tries to steer them away from it, saying that it's a terrible place to eat. Why? She works there, and doesn't want Jounouchi to blab about it to the school, because kids at Domino High School (like at [[TruthInTelevision some real-life Japanese high schools]]) aren't allowed to hold jobs. (Note: In the English dub of the anime, the reason for her not wanting them to talk was changed from "High school students can't hold jobs" to "I'm not old enough to work here.") Still, it was a better job than what they were ''afraid'' she was doing to make money, working as a paid escort for rich businessmen, something that, it was rumored, the other female students were doing to make money. (And yes, as far as Japan goes, this is ''also'' TruthInTelevision, unfortunately.)
