What is this stressful job you have?

I am a female in the construction industry, so yes it can be stressful, but also very rewarding, so it’s worth it.

I’m a school psychologist, definitely a stressful job.  There’s a lot of pressure put on us by parents and teachers and I’m part of my school’s crisis team so that’s even more added on.

I have never done it before and I will be paving the way in my new job (meaning no one has done it before) so I expect it to be high stress and high reward. Is a brand manager.

Almost zero stress. I run a pet care company.

Animals don’t complain, and my “office” is the great Canadian wilderness. I walk between 10-20 dogs per day, off leash…in the woods and parks.

I rarely deal with the humans because they are never home.


I’m on my 15th year and have no plans to quit.

I’m an IT Admin/Director and it can be really high stress. IT is a 24/7 field. I’m always on call and like you said, think about work almost all of the time. I dream about it most nights. I do work in the legal industry which is notoriously high stress and adds another level to the 24/7 field aspect.

@Mrs.Ouellette: I agree and I’m also a police dispatcher 🙂 Can be uber stressful at times as well. Every day is different, which is why I enjoy it!

@MissShork: I worked in the property management/real estate industry for several years. VERY high stress. Can’t even begin to tell you the death threats (verbal and written) I’ve received. One guy even came to my office with an axe. After that incident, I no longer handled foreclosures/evictions.
