What’s a low job happiness score?

According to this post, if someone rates their job happiness at a six out of ten, they’re very unhappy.

If you ask people how satisfied they are with their job, on a scale of 1-10, people will answer 8, 9, or 10 when they’re happy, 7 when their neutral, and 6 when they’re quite unhappy. Few people will tell you below a 6 unless they’re walking out the door.


That’s why I like stay interviews. People aren’t great (or truthful) at rating their happiness, but they’re usually willing to be honest about when they last thought about leaving and why.
