Abstract

The aim of this paper is to (1) explore the antecedents of truck drivers’ job satisfaction and (2) identify the impact of financial and non-financial job properties on satisfaction with the job and with one’s employer and (3) the drivers’ proneness to retaining their jobs. Based on the extant literature, we develop a conceptual model that is tested using survey data for 164 truck drivers. Multiple linear and ordinal logistic regressions were used to estimate the proposed effects. The results reveal that non-financial job properties and satisfaction with one’s employer affect job satisfaction statistically significantly. Financial and non-financial job properties affect satisfaction with one’s employer whereas the former shows a lower impact compared to the latter. Satisfaction with the job and one’s employer impacts retention proneness. The contribution of this paper is to (1) add to the understanding of the factors that predict retention of truck drivers in relationship to job satisfaction and (2) highlight the different roles of financial and non-financial job properties in this specific work context.
