Hello Muhammad Erad,

Strolling is a specific kind of walking -- if you follow the link you can see a definition for it. Most people walk much more often than they stroll. 

All the best,

My first job has been when I was 15 years old. I worked in a supermarket as a cashier. A cashier is a person handling payments and receipts in a store, bank, or other business.
I found the job by myself.

My first job I was waiter. Was it enjoyable and today I am teacher of Tecnologies. In that time I don't have problem with my payment because i lived with my parents and of course they help me in my studies and payed my books. Today I live with my family and i have two son and is a pleasure same happen that my parents did for me.
Thank team!

My first job was to take care off mentally handicapped people. The money was okay, but that was less important. I really liked this job. My mother worked at the same company. So it was really easy to get the job. Most of the money i spent partying with friends.

Hello everyone,
My first job was when I was fifteen. I started working as an assistant in a store selling fabrics, especially curtains. We cut the fabric and prepared the curtain, then we installed it in the client's house.
I was lucky to have a legal salary for my working life and retirement pension.

Good morning everyone,
My first job with pay, was in Fuerteventura, Canary Islands in Spain, I worked as machine washe in kichen of a hotel, and after four months I began a water in a restaurant. I have a good experience with this job because I haven't contract but the company payed me regularly and correctly,

I was waiting my conclusion of universty exam. I found a job while I was waiting. I worked at a stationary shop. I was working eleven houes a day. It was horrible and owners of stationary shop were very rude. I couldn't bear more and I quited job. There was two days for getting my salary. I don't know what I did with the salary. Then, I promised myself that I never work like these jobs and with these people.

Hey everyone, my first job was horrible, I worked in a supermarket. I met many people, such as bad people, such as good people, that experience was really traumatic because I didn't know how to behave in that environment, I tought that people they would be nice with me, I was deep mistaken, they was really fake and stupid with me. But now, I'm studying in the best university of the city and that people who wanted my bad, well, they suffering the consequences of their actions. Peace!

My first job wasn't really exciting, I was a valet parking, but not a normal one. I had only to say to people: "You can park here for no more than 1 hour". I was 15 and I gained 5€/hour, not much but enough for that age

before studying business trade.
I worked with my step-father as his delivering-fish assistance, we used to a place where the fish arrives in barranquilla, the we had to delivery them to all the store into the city, we used to started at 6:00 am and ended around 10-11 am, the payment was quit good, I was taught of many good maner which are made good thing in me like a be responsable, get early when I must work next day and how to spend my money.
