Summary:
The relationship between job satisfaction levels (as measured by work, pay, opportunities for promotion, supervision, co-workers, and the job in general) and demographic variables (age group, tenure with the hospital, sex, and job classification) was explored. A sample of 500 employees was selected from an alphabetical listing of the 2,800 employees at a 737 bed tax-assisted acute care Florida hospital on October 1, 1987. This was accomplished by selecting every sixth person from the alphabetical listing. Each selected employee was sent a memorandum explaining the survey's purpose (the method by which, and the people to whom the results of the survey would be presented and steps taken to ensure employee confidentiality), a Job Descriptive Index, instructions for its completion, and a return interoffice envelope. The results were analyzed by using MANOVA and Univariate F testing at the.05 level of significance and the Scheffe post hoc test at the.01 level of significance. The MANOVA test yielded no significant relationships between age group, tenure with the hospital, and job satisfaction levels. However, significance was demonstrated on the Univariate F tests for all six dependent variables, for the independent variable job classification, and the Scheffe post hoc test was performed on all dependent variables.
