Abstract:

This study replicates a survey that was done in 1983 which identified sources of job satisfaction and dissatisfaction among U.S. Coast Guard Officers in the grades of lieutenant, lieutenant commander and commander. The results from the current survey are compared with the previous surveys results and statistically significant changes in the levels of satisfaction and dissatisfaction are analyzed. In general, levels of satisfaction with intrinsic sources of motivation remained high in both surveys while levels of satisfaction with extrinsic sources of motivation, such as pay and promotion, declined in the current survey. Recommendations are made for improving job satisfaction among these officers.
