Abstract : A 44-item questionnaire, covering twenty-eight management problem areas, was administered to personnel at twenty different maintenance units in the Far East, Europe, and the Continental United States. Completed questionnaires from 2,122 airmen were used to evaluate the relationship between each problem area and job-satisfaction. The analysis showed that job-satisfaction is most affected by those problems that could be controlled or corrected by the immediate supervisors and least affected by those problems which have to be solved at levels farther up the chain of command. Supporting evidence was obtained from interviews and a special psychiatric study. (Author)
