Abstract: A relationship between selected environmental factors and job satisfaction was developed for employees in the automotive industries in Malaysia. Methods in developing the relationship include questionnaire design, data collection and statistical analysis. A set of multiple-choice questionnaires was developed and data collected by interviewing the employees at the production plant. One hundred and seventy male subjects between the ages of 18 to 40 years with a mean age of 26.8 and SD of 5.3 years and mean work experience of 6.5 and SD of 4.9 years took part in the survey. The survey focused on selected environmental factors and job satisfaction. The results showed that job environment factors were significantly related to job satisfaction. Further, they also highlighted that there were significant influences of age, work experience and marital status on job satisfaction. This implied that the older, married and more experienced workers were highly satisfied with their work compare to the younger, single and less experienced workers.
