Abstract Selected Reservists must balance roles related to military duties, civilian job, and family while maintaining health and other readiness standards. Previous studies have explored the association between job stressors and well-being using occupational stress models. The current research was undertaken to define the stressors and resources encountered by reservists, a group unique from both their civilian and active duty counterparts. Two forms of qualitative methodology were used to (1) identify sources of stress according to an occupational stress framework and (2) obtain preliminary data on the frequency and intensity of these stressors. Twelve key informant interviews explored stressors and pilot tested questions for focus groups. Focus groups, structured by gender and rank, were held to expand the data base of stressor items. In addition, focus group participants completed a questionnaire that measured frequency and intensity of items on a preliminary list of stressors. Analysis of qualitative data from focus groups demonstrated that demands related to time and schedule conflicts were important stressors for this group.
