This paper deals with the relationship between job satisfaction and length of employment in a particular job. The hypothesis that the change in job satisfaction with job seniority resembles a “U”-shaped curve is confirmed. It is suggested that intrinsic satisfaction is a major contributor to changes in the overall satisfaction of employees over time.
