Employee Characteristics and Job Satisfaction

Christine Anyango, Dr. Patrick Ojera, Dr. Isaac Ochieng

The effect of employee characteristics on job satisfaction is an area that has been given consideration by scholars without an agreement. It is becoming undoubted that this relationship varies from firm to firm based on working conditions. The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of employee characteristics on job satisfaction of private security guards in Western Kenya. Using a sample of 385, findings reveal that pay, education, years of experience, expectations and gender have significant effect on job satisfaction while age, marital status and professional training do not significantly affect job satisfaction. The findings thus contrast other studies suggesting that for different organizations, different employee characteristics affect job satisfaction.
