ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A new study by Career Cast ranks enlisted military member as the most stressful. Firefighter comes in at number three. So what's the least stressful job? According to the study, audiologist.    

Wednesday we talked to Albany audiologist Doug Lorber and Moultrie firefighter Kenny Humphrey to see what they think about the rankings and their jobs.

"Wonderful I've been in private practice now, for the last seven years, and I'm guessing it's relatively stress free," said Doug Lorber, audiologist.

"Training it really helps us overcome those stressful conditions, it's sort of like a football player, going back to the fundamentals you always fall back on your training," said Kenny Humphrey, firefighter.

The rankings are based on a measurement of 11 stress factors.
