Pharmacist

These rankings are bizarre.   I am pretty sure a career as a historian is much less stressful that the easiest day in the pharmacy. Trust me on this one.

agreed

agreed about the streesfulness of pharma

Pharmacist are very stressful

Pharmacist are very stressful and no jobs outlook, there are too many. No way it is #17

You are so right! Pharmacist

You are so right! Pharmacist #17??????. Pharmacist are so stressful and no jobs. Something is wrong with the ranking.

This list is ridiculous.

This list is ridiculous. Where are the chemical and process engineers? Considering that they're considered the most bang-for-your-buck, they'd show up SOMEWHERE on the list.

AGREED.

AGREED.

Give me a break

I question the ratings because the the 3 most stressful jobs are Military Personnel(I agree with this one), University Professor and Seamstress/Tailor??? How can a University Professor or a Seamstress/Tailor be more stressful than police officer or firemen? They even rate more stressful than Military General or those in the healthcare profession(especially the ones that deal with emergency situations).

Wrong

Professor and seamstress are ranked least stressful, not most.  

In what alternate universe??

A historian makes $66,000 a year?  Yes, there are a few.  But the vast majority don't make enough to live on.  Most of the ones I know qualify for food stamps. 

GOD help me, I work at Walmart

I work a Walmart, if you want to be underpaid,under appreciated,  and work with the dumbest, know nothing, arogant, my shit doesn't stink management, then this place is for you. NOt to mention, most of the people that work there do not speak or understand english. Dumbies hiring dumbies! 

Is that how you got Hired at Walmart?

Is that how you got Hired at Walmart?

HAHAHAHA! :-) GOOD ONE!

HAHAHAHA! :-) GOOD ONE!

Go To School

I wholeheartedly agree with you; I always had problems getting my prescriptions filled at Walmart. The technicians did not understand the difference between voicemail and beepers when trying to contact my doctor, and when I tried to tell the dummasses, one of them poped off at me "we have the doctor's information here!" and hung up the phone on me. I always ran out of pills before the month was over: I thought you had to know how to count and think in order to even get into pharmacy school? A bunch of Fargginin'  Iceholes!!!! (a.k.a, Deepholes)

Astronomy? Seriously?

Astronomer's make how much!?

Seriously

Not to be confused with Astrologers.

Web Developer at #24 best?

I am a Web Developer and it is a high stress job with little pay. I sure would love to make that 74k a year vs this 54k a year. Would make the stress worth it. 

Lucky guy

I am doing this job for 30 000$

I guess Teacher must be the worst job

They didnt list Teacher in the top 200...is that not a job anymore. You have College Professor Teaching Aides for little kids and School Principals...but Teachers didnt make the cut. I know there is negative job growth. I have a masters, have been out of school for a year and a half, and have not gotten a single interview to teach at the high school level where I live where teachers make good money. I do not want to have to pick up and move to a bad neighborhood to be Michelle Pfieffer in that movie with the Coolio song. Regardless its a pretty major oversight by this list. I am sure they omitted other professions as well.

Teachers did make the list...

What grad level? Elementary school teachers are at #93...

I wanna start taking web

I wanna start taking web developing courses in my free time. The tech people in my company make serious money.
