Friend, Kenneth E.; Burns, Lawton R.
Personnel Psychology, 30, 4, 589-605, W 77
Survey data were used to examine hypotheses about job size and satisfaction in a broad spectrum of jobs. Job size, higher-order need importance, urban-rural residence, and blue or white-collar job category were tested as predictors of satisfaction. Results are discussed in terms of three potential sources of variation in satisfaction: job, person, and interaction of job and person. (Editor/RK)
