Abstract : This paper presents data relating to expectations concerning Okinawa that marines develop and the effect of expectations upon several job-relevant attitudes and behaviors. In the present study, we were interested in the relationship between expectations and adjustment in transfers rather than initial organizational entry. We examined the role of expectations developed prior to transfer on later transfer adjustment. Specifically we investigated the relationship between expectations developed prior to transfer, their 'realism', and later adjustment in the new job situation. (Author)
