'Broadcaster' Again Makes Most-Stressed List

According to a new study by, “Broadcaster” is the eighth most stressful job you can have. They looked at 11 different kinds of job demands that evoke stress, both physical and mental.

Stress, as defined by the Jobs Rated methodology, is determined by 11 factors: travel, deadlines, working in the public eye, competitiveness, physical demands, environmental conditions, hazards encountered, the life of oneself or others at risk, meeting and interacting with customers and/or the public, and the potential for job growth.

    1. Nobody forced you to be a bus driver. An admirable profession, but you don't seem to be handling it well. What a bitter, unhappy person you are...

    2. It depends on the type of bus routes. There's a big difference between driving inner city buses and regional suburban buses.

      Most of the time with city buses it's the drivers who hassle passengers for no reason.

  2. Thought Dentist would make the list as they are very high in suicide stats.

  3. I don't she any medical professionals listed. I would think anything from first responder on up would be extremely stressful!
