The hashtag offers a behind-the-scenes look at the good, bad and boring bits of working at McDonald’s. Some videos show people frying food, stacking shelves, cleaning, dealing with broken drink machines and taking out the bins.

What started as an unintentionally funny video soon gained momentum and hundreds of other TikTokers have posted videos using her “Maccas Job Check” audio. Together, they have been viewed more than a million times.

In the videos that people shared, they were dance, playing pranks, distracting their colleagues, complaining about the smell and answering the classic question: “how much do you get paid for working here?”

The users who made these videos intended for people to be more polite & kinder to the employees working in these fast food joints.

As per a document hosted on the McDonald’s Australia website titled ‘en_social_media_policy.html’ says that employees may not use their own private social media accounts to “undermine the goodwill, reputation, development and or operation” of the company.

However, how McDonald’s will react to these videos is yet to be decided as no response has been received from them.
