    Social benefits?  I would think the answer is zero.  I look at it from the business side and I am looking at taking these kids and teaching them about responsibility and creating a valid work ethic.  There is no time to tweet, or facebook, or listen to music while on the job.  I hope each of my crew can easily put a reference to this job on the "real" job app they will be looking for in the future.  Molding these kids for the future is my goal while employing them to help me make the most of my business.  A bit jaded perhaps, but remember I am on the "inside" looking out.  Now, would you like fries with this answer?

    Well, speaking from experience, you learn humility and patience.  You also get the perspective of the lowest class of citizens, the proles.  It's important to have perspective of how other people live their lives.  I learned a hell of a lot working fast food jobs--mainly that I want to finish college lol.

    You take a lot of crap serving customers but you learn how to be more out going and deal with the rudest,most ignorant people, it makes you stronger. When I worked at a popular coffee shop I learned the more you smile at the customer and take the time to do things right you get happier customers and better tips! PS people working in fast food restaurants are not lowest class citizens, they are people that are actually working hard... Unlike others. Plus a lot of them are paying their way through school.

    that's an interesting question. one of my first jobs was driving for dominos. all of us were around the same age, 17 to 21 and we had a great crew. we all got along great, even hung out together after work. since then i have worked as manger to kids of the same age group and i have never seen the same kind of camaraderie among them that i had at dominos. even when some of the kids i managed were classmates at school. even though they seemed to have delightful personalities as individuals, when they got around each other all hell usually broke loose. very good question indeed.
