Testing a Model of Administrative Job Satisfaction. AIR 2002 Forum Paper.
Volkwein, J. Fredericks; Zhou, Ying
This study proposed a model of administrative job satisfaction and tested the model using a database of 1,178 administrators at 120 public and private universities. The robust model explained 54% of the variance in ones overall job satisfaction. Overall, the results show that state, campus, and most of the personal characteristics variables do not exert direct effects on one's overall job satisfaction. Instead, these exogenous organizational and personal variables exert small, but statistically significant, effects on the administrative work climates. These immediate work climates, in turn, have more powerful impact on the various components of job satisfaction. Three appendixes contain charts of estimates of effects of variables in the model.
