2010 Salary Survey: Readers Respond -- Job Satisfaction Through The Years

Chemical Processing takes a look at past surveys to understand how satisfied workers are on the job.

Closely related to compensation is job satisfaction — the majority of respondents indicate they are satisfied with their jobs (Figure 1). About 9.9% (164) are very satisfied, 38% (638) are highly satisfied and another 37% (622) are satisfied. Only 11% (184) say they have a low level of job satisfaction and another 2.9% (48) report a very low level of satisfaction.

How the Data Were Gathered
A total of 1,827 respondents participated in this year's survey. That's second only to 2007 when 1,830 people answered our questions.

Since mid-January, respondents accessed the survey questionnaire via a link listed in the print edition of Chemical Processing, on the www.ChemicalProcessing.com Web site, and in e-newsletters and e-mail blasts sent to readers. Additionally, those who follow Chemical Processing on Twitter at Chem_Processing and Facebook at Chemical Processing Magazine were also encouraged to participate.
