Job satisfaction is believed to be a fundamental attribute for companies’ success. The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of age, gender, occupational position and job performance in job satisfaction among employees of a Financial Centre in Dublin (N=70). A mixed design quasi experimental study was undertaken. Job performance was recorded by the employees. Participants were also asked to indicate gender, age and occupational position. Each participant completed the same questionnaire over three consecutive days. The results showed that age, gender, occupational position and job performance did not play a significant role on job satisfaction therefore the null hypothesis were accepted. Furthermore, job satisfaction scores did not differ across the three days. Suggestions for further studies were also provided.
