A survey was designed to comprehensively assess multiple aspects of school counselor job satisfaction and job-related frustration, as well as orientation with the comprehensive curriculum-based guidance program used in Arizona. The five-page survey was completed by 155 Arizona school counselors. While the majority of respondents reported high levels of job satisfaction, the least satisfying aspects of their work involved working with district administrators, spending too much time in nonguidance activities, responding to crises, and utilizing excessive time in providing system support. Respondents' greatest levels of satisfaction involved direct interaction and engagement with students.
