Abstract : This study examined the relationship between personality and job satisfaction in a major international corporation. Personality features were specifically defined by the Five-Factor Model (Neuroticism, Extraversion, Openness, Agreeableness, and Conscientiousness) assessed by the Big Five Inventory: Version 44 (John, Donahue, & Kentle, 1991). Data were collected from 804 participants in six occupational areas (technical, business, human resources, administrative, legal/wellness, and non-exempt) and spanning four job classification levels (senior management, middle management, supervisory, and non-supervisory responsibility employees). Correlational analyses revealed a significant, inverse relation between Neuroticism and job satisfaction in all but one job category.
