This study examined several situational moderators of the relationship between job scope and responses among part-time organizational members. Measures of job scope, job attitudes, withdrawal intentions, and reenlistment decisions were collected from 395 National Guardsmen. The moderator effects by job contextual factors on the relationships between job complexity and dependent measures were investigated. Complexity of the job was positively and strongly related to all dependent variables, and little evidence for moderators was found using subgroup analysis and moderated regression. Implications for these results are discussed in terms of recent research on moderator effects.
