      My job can definitely be stressful from time to time! With any project there are timelines and it is rare for them to be easy to meet. That makes for a stressful environment, particularly when a deadline approaches and there is still a lot of work to do! For the most part good planning helps but if there isn’t pressure then you’ve been wasting time somewhere!

      Yes but not all the time. Without a little stress from time to time, life on site would be pretty boring. over time you learn how to deal with stress and it all becomes part of your day to day work. I do have times when I take a step back to calm down. My work mates are pretty good at making me laugh and de-stress.

      It can be at times but sometimes it can be really fun. Whenever I feel a bit stressed I usually just take a little break or stare out the window a bit.
