Abstract

This study assessed the relationships of job characteristics, job satisfaction, and job performance in a sample of 315 table service restaurant employees. Results demonstrate the job characteristics to be reliable constructs, and that the sample perceived them to exist at varying levels in their jobs. Multiple measures of job satisfaction are reported and compared. Perceived job characteristics do appear to influence job satisfaction, but demonstrate only a very limited relationship with job performance. Recommendations are suggested for job design or job redesign that may enhance satisfaction and performance.
