A Gallery Of The 10 Unhappiest Jobs In America

According to the folks at Forbes

CareerBliss compiled a list of the 10 unhappiest jobs based on analysis from more than 100,400 employee-generated reviews between February 2011 and January 2012. Employees were asked to rate 10 factors that affect workplace happiness, including one’s relationship with the boss and co-workers, work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture, company reputation, daily tasks, and control over the work one does on a daily basis.

The employees valued each factor on a five-point scale, and also indicated how important it was to their overall happiness at work. The numbers were combined to find an average rating of overall employee happiness for each respondent, and then sorted by job title to find which occupations had the unhappiest workers. A minimum of 50 employee reviews was required to be considered for CareerBliss’ 10 Unhappiest Jobs in America, and executive level jobs, like chief executive, were excluded from the study.

“It is imperative to understand what drives happiness and unhappiness in the workplace and what factors impact various job types,” says CareerBliss’ chief executive, Heidi Golledge.


“We have found a direct correlation in career happiness to overall happiness in life,” says Matt Miller, chief technology officer at CareerBliss. “Stress at work, for example, can often carry over to stress at home. “
