Passion and purpose are essential, no matter what job you do. It’s possible to find a lot of fulfillment, personal growth, and financial stability at companies that some people might dismiss entirely. Nobody should be looked down on for choosing to work at McDonald’s. You can make a career there—just like anywhere else if you’re ambitious, work hard, and know how to manage people. And you know what matters a ton, too? Actually enjoying your job.

TikToker @luck33one went viral after posting a video where she called out a commenter who made fun of her for working as a manager at McDonald’s. In the TikTok, she explained what the main perks of her job are. At the core of it all, what she says she has is a career, not just a job. And you can feel it in her every word. Scroll down for the full video, as well as the discussions it started. If you enjoyed @luck33one’s insights, be sure to follow her on TikTok.

Working at a fast food restaurant can be a legitimate career choice. However, some people still look down on those who work at places like McDonald’s

The main point that @luck33one made was that it’s not _just_ working at McDonald’s. It’s a privilege. With good benefits. And a fair wage. She stressed the fact that she’s worked “very, very hard” to get her position as manager for many years. “I invested in it like a career, because that’s what this is. I’m a salaried employee,” she said.

“I don’t know about you, but I enjoy making six figures. I enjoy getting bonuses. I enjoy my job,” the TikToker pointed out that her job provides her with financial stability. What’s more, she actually loves what she’s doing. This is a huge deal because money alone (without any sense of purpose) usually isn’t enough to keep people rooted in a job.

Her followers were very supportive of her and shared their own experiences with making careers in ‘unexpected’ places. Knowing how to manage people well is a wonderful skill to have. It’s something that will never go out of style (unless the entire workforce is replaced with emotionless, tireless robots, but let’s not get too ahead of ourselves here).

Here’s the TikToker’s full viral video

According to Glassdoor, the salary of a general manager at McDonald’s in the United States is around 96k dollars per year, with a base pay of just over 60k dollars, and additional pay of nearly 36k dollars.

The website notes that the possible salary range for such a position extends all the way from 48k dollars all the way to a jaw-dropping 425k dollars. So the TikToker’s claim that she earns six figures is most likely the truth. Again, to reiterate: good managers are hard to come by.

Growing your career is so much more than just doing your job well. You have to know how to communicate well with your team members and your management. What’s more, the harsh reality is that your efforts probably won’t get noticed all that much at work if you don’t draw attention to them. You ought to remind your boss about your achievements somewhere around twice a year to keep them in the loop. If you won’t fight for your own interests, why should anyone else?

Workplace expert Lynn Taylor, the author of ‘Tame Your Terrible Office Tyrant,’ put it very well in a recent interview with Bored Panda that diplomacy and emotional intelligence are paramount at work. It’s what separates great employees from merely good ones.

“You will ascend faster to senior management with such traits as independence, wisdom, resourcefulness, and patience to see a problem through. You may not have all the answers, but giving it your best shot is imperative,” the expert shared some of the things that management tends to value.

Everyone has a boss (well, unless you’re the top dog, the big honcho at the very peak of the pyramid, in which case—congratulations on your success), so it’s vital to know how to ‘manage up.’

“If you’re managing up properly, you’re a problem solver for your boss, not the other way around. You’re there to make life easier for your manager. That said, you should never suffer in silence. People should complain when their boundaries are crossed or when their job becomes untenable. For example, if that’s the case, you would want to complain to management or HR or a combination thereof,” the workplace expert told Bored Panda that professionalism is a combination of independently solving problems, providing alternative solutions, setting boundaries, and communicating what’s important.

Being a manager can be very rewarding and incredibly lucrative

Here’s what some TikTokers had to say on the topic. Most of them were incredibly supportive
