The findings of this study did not replicate the job level/job satisfaction hypothesis for women working on a hospital nursing staff, a traditional occupation for women. Two interaction models, a symmetrical and asymmetrical model, were then applied using field independence as the individual differences moderating variable. While the asymmetrical model was the best predictor of job satisfaction patterns, both models were required to account fully for differences in satisfaction patterns. Theoretical and applied implication were discussed.
