Depends on your department, but as an operator, I would say the times when your daily workload keeps mounting; you have your daily duties (rounds and chemistry at how many ever plants/units), chemical offloads, PMs, maintenance, vendor sponsorship, etc. Sometimes you have a really busy day, and you have to really prioritize, but it does go by fast. The other stressful times are usually regarding plant upsets, or project deadlines, but it's really not that bad.
