A Supercheap Auto worker stood down pending an investigation is the recipient of multiple job offers thanks to his "loyal" behaviour while on the job.

Viral video that emerged last week shows the worker grabbing the pram of an alleged shoplifter at a Gold Coast store, who claimed items stuffed under a blanket were in fact a baby.

Despite the woman's resistance and screams, the worker persists and manages to retrieve the items from the pram, with no sign of a child inside.

And while his employees are reviewing the incident, which has seen him temporarily stood down, others are jumping at the chance to hire him.

2GB radio host Ben Fordham said he'd have a host of employers calling in trying to get him on board.

“I’ve had people calling in on my radio show saying they’d offer him a job. They would give him a pay rise or a promotion,” he said on Today Extra.

Southport Auto Recyclers said they'd like to interview the worker for a position.

"It's crazy that Supercheap have stood him down after the commitment to them he demonstrated!" they said on Facebook.

Autobarn Burleigh Heads owner Michael Farrar told the Gold Coast Bulletin the man's actions made him a desirable candidate for work.

“His actions showed to me that he is a loyal person and someone we would want on our team,” he said.

While the man instructed bystanders to call the police in the viral clip, police said they did not receive a formal complaint over the alleged theft attempt.
