15. Airfield Operations Specialists
Mean annual salary: $52,380
Job satisfaction rate: 83%
We start off with airfield operations specialists who are hired to ascertain an airplane’s safe landing and departure. That puts a lot of burden on their shoulders if you ask me, but only 52% thought it was a meaningful job! That happens to be the lowest number on our list, though I fail to understand how an apparently low meaning job could yield such high satisfaction. Well, that mystery aside, someone has got to do it, and safety always comes first!
