Abstract : This study measured job satisfaction of Air Force pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. A survey was designed to collect demographic data and measure 12 facets of job satisfaction. Pharmacy job satisfaction, Air Force job satisfaction, and role ambiguity were the dependent variables measured. Response rates were 82% for pharmacists and 59% for technicians. Results indicated pharmacists were satisfied with all facets of job satisfaction measured. Multiple regression indicated specific job motivators (ability utilization, work challenge, goals and plans, policies and practices, and staffing) accounted for 43.1% of the variance in pharmacists' job satisfaction. Pharmacists in management positions were more satisfied than staff pharmacists. Technicians were satisfied with most job satisfaction facets measured, including overall pharmacy job satisfaction. However, the technicians were dissatisfied with their compensation.
