10 Super-Stressful Jobs

Pilots (and those who help them land)

Pilots, of course, are responsible for the lives of their passengers. Pilots (and crew) spend a lot of time away from home. The air-traffic controllers, the people who are responsible for helping the pilot land the plane, may feel even more stress. Perhaps no other job has been as readily identified as the "poster job" for stress.

Both of these groups are responsible for thousands of lives. People expect to arrive at their destination safely and as quickly as possible. The demands of these jobs are high. There is very little room for error, and not a whole lot of down time. The work is usually done in shifts with the schedule changing all the time. You work lots of holidays, putting additional stress on your family life.
