Abstract : Differential perceptions of standard and long established jobs in a stable organization were obtained for sixteen jobs rated on eight characteristics by job incumbents, peers, and supervisors. Incumbents in entry-level jobs evaluated such jobs more highly than did their peers or supervisors, while incumbents in highly skilled terminal-type craft jobs evaluated their jobs less positively than did their peers or supervisors. Results of the study are discussed in terms of the social and psychological processes that may have influenced the various groups' ratings. (Modified author abstract)
