    Being a Marine. I am veteran... I would have to say it is the most stressful job. Every branch, but especially Marine Corps. Service-men & women commit suicide quite often in the military because of stress, which causes depression.

    try being a cook in the casino industry. let alone working with the guest at the same time. the MOST stressful job ever in my life. we all forget that when u out to eat. dont forget about the ones in the back preparing your food. must have it right and done on time. our jobs r all about being on time and perfectly done to please your stomach. and if you are a picky person(which most are) its not fun at all. our rep is on the line. if we serve bad food we get no business and no money
