4.. but it all depends

If it ain't a crisis it doesn't register.

4... only because of my boss. If she wasn't my boss, it'd be a 1.

I was at an 8, but now at a -5.

I hope to get it back up to at least a 6.

stress is relative. your level 5 is different than my level 5. Some people handle it better, some worse.

8 months out of the year I am at about a 4. 4 months out of the year I run around a 12.5
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 5:07:38 PM EST
A 4 most of the time.

A 7 last week when i was working 12 hours every night and spending 4-8 hours in court during the day, trying to catch a couple hours sleep in between.

I voted 1-2, but my job is a 0.

How stressful is it to sit at my desk and surf ARFCOM?
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 5:11:50 PM EST
Most of the time 1, on occasion 10 though. They pay me for what I am prepaired to do not necessarily what I do.
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 5:13:08 PM EST
Usually a 3, but occasionally 8, due to shitty, old, rattletrap equipment.
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 5:16:22 PM EST
Nurse here, my job goes from 1-2 to 11 in the blink of an eye.
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 5:23:59 PM EST
I go to sleep at night wondering when the next mortor is gonna come onto the base. Granted its been quite awhile but I think about it all the time. Nothing you can do.
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 5:26:24 PM EST
Consistently a 7 or 8, can go up to a 12.5 in a blink.
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 5:29:10 PM EST
averages about a 7, but can swing wildly from as low as 5 to as high as 9.5

That's why only you can vote your own level in the poll. So it makes no difference if its your 5 or my 5; it is subjective, and so the poll works like majic. We are scientists, after all.

7-8 - but in a subtle, non-obvious kind of way

Link Posted: 1/14/2006 5:43:02 PM EST
1 about 90% of the time. 5-8 the other 10 %.
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 5:48:41 PM EST
After the management change? About a 3. Before? An 11. Amazing what having one idiotic dickhead for a boss can do.

Link Posted: 1/14/2006 5:53:25 PM EST
I cant use that scale if the lower #'s equal boring.

I love my job
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 5:56:11 PM EST
I would have to say 8-9,

9-1-1 dispatcher
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 5:57:38 PM EST
Eustress or distress??

Here is what I do:

Motorcycle Police Officer
Traffic Homicide Investigator
Instructor in Handgun, Shotgun, Rifle, Submachine gun, SIMUNITION, and Shoot House
SWAT Sniper

It keeps me very busy, but because I love doing it all, my stress level is not very high.

My boss gives me more grief than all others combined.

depends on the day 7-8

Whats a JOB?

1-2 by the way.
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 6:24:06 PM EST
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 6:25:08 PM EST
1 75% of the time

10 25%

Flight Sergeant for a very very good flight. When things run well, its a walk in the park. But for the next two weeks its going to be an 11.

I'm not trying to be rude, but how stressful and how hard is the job of a business school prof. I go to a top ranked school for accounting and finance and I don’t see my profs working too terribly hard. Perhaps there is a side I don’t see.

I work at a restaurant that has been opened for almost a year. 3 of the 4 owners, if you combined their restaurant know-how and ability, you wouldnt equal the 1/2 of the ability of any given employee in the restaurant.

The servers and bussers manage the front of the restaurant. No lie.

I hate it,

Voted 3-4.

It's usually a 2, but during times when the schools are out (Summer, Christmas Break, Spring Break) more like an 8.
Link Posted: 1/15/2006 1:57:31 AM EST
7 maybe.. I work in a busy cramped kitchen...
Link Posted: 1/15/2006 3:45:02 AM EST
8 on a very good day. Mostly 9.5's and way too many 10's.

Everyday I go into work, someone is trying to die, and I'm trying to help them to keep living.
Link Posted: 1/15/2006 3:57:20 AM EST
Which job?
Volunteer Firefighter: 8 when actually doing calls, negative numbers for the rest of what I do with them.
Army National Guard: 5 on most drill weekends but can go a lot higher depending on what we're doing
Nurse: Overall about an 8

I'm a teacher, I love my job and I love planning my classes.

I have one class that is difficult. They don't seem to have fun and are very oppositional, but other than that... it's fun to come into work.

I don't like most other teachers and keeping quiet about that is sometimes a challenge (some are truly crazy, some are just lazy). And the NEA, don't get me started....

I love my supervisor, he is very supportive of what I do with the kids and he doesn't micro manage me.

I would say I'm a 2 or 3.

Dude!! We work at the same place!!

My job can go from 1 to 10 in any given day. Luckily, it's usually much closer to 1. Back when my idiotic dickhead of a boss was still there, it never fell below about 6. Now we're (as a group) enjoying low stress, while performing at the highest level since I've been there - about 8 years. My current boss is wise enough to let us do what we do and the guys that work for me no longer have to wonder how to deal with me on a daily basis. Not that I was one to let shit roll down hill, but sometimes it's unavoidable when the idiotic dickhead made policy that forced it.

I work in the busiest transmission shop in the Midwest. I have to orchestrate everything.
I'm the sales guy, order all the parts, get stuff done on time. Make sure the customer leaves happy.
It is controlled kaos every day.

As a nursing supervisor it's either 2-3 or 7-8. It takes alot of energy to keep these 23 year old nurses from killing somebody.
