Job Satisfaction Self-Assessment

People can use self-assessments to determine if they are satisfied with their jobs.

The Job Satisfaction Survey is an assessment tool that measures 9 facets of the job. It has been used in hundreds of studies to determine how people feel about their jobs, and about what might be potential antecedents and consequences. It has been used mainly for organizations to benchmark employee engagement and feelings about the job. Paul is now providing a job satisfaction self-assessment for individuals at no cost to self-assess their own job satisfaction. More details on the JSS can be found on the JSS page.

The Job Satisfaction Self-Assessment

The self-assessment displays all 36 items and allows you to indicate how much you agree/disagree with each one. At the bottom the scores for each of the 9 facets and overall satisfaction are displayed along with an indication of where most people fall for comparison. This is based on the American norms from more than 36,000 individuals. More precise norms for different occupations and industry sectors are also available. The displayed range was computed as +/- one standard deviation from the mean for each facet and total score.
