Job satisfaction, the extent to which employees like their work, has long been an important topic in organizational behavior. Despite the importance of measuring job satisfaction, many studies ignore moderating effects. In this study, two moderating variables, positive and negative affectivity, were used as part of a structural equation model to determine their effects on job satisfaction. In the first phase of the study, 132 subjects completed a questionnaire designed to measure job satisfaction. The initial model was subjected to statistical testing and modification through analysis of covariance structures. A final model was proposed and cross-validated on 110 new subjects. Results based on fit indices and R2 values suggest that the model is a good indicator of job satisfaction and that positive and negative affectivity both influence job satisfaction.
