Examined job attitudes as a function of employee full-time and part-time job status, sex, and tenure using multivariate ANOVA and discriminant function analysis. Measures of satisfaction with work, pay, benefits, supervision, advancement, and the job in general were collected from 399 full-time and 665 part-time clerical level employees in 55 stores of a Midwestern retail sales organization. Significant results were found for job status, sex, and tenure. There were no interactions. Part-time employees were less satisfied with work, benefits, and the job in general. These results were obtained after controlling for differences due to employee sex and tenure, and they were consistent with knowledge of objective organizational conditions. Directions for research are suggested using the concepts of frame of reference, social comparisons, and partial inclusion. (17 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
