Physicians didn’t fare so well. General-practice physicians (No. 83) and surgeons (No. 98) might wince to find their jobs ranked much lower than chiropractors (No. 26), influenced in part by stress and difficult work environments.
Home health aides, registered or licensed practical nurses and physician assistants also ranked near the halfway mark on the list, boosted by their growth potential but brought down by work conditions. No healthcare professions ranked among the bottom 20 jobs on the list.
The distinction of worst job on the list went to newspaper reporters, who ranked just below lumberjacks.
