Abstract (summary)

At 12.5 million employees, the restaurant industry is the largest private-sector employer in the United States, with females comprising approximately 7.0 million of these workers (National Restaurant Association, 2006). The annual cost of employee turnover for restaurants projected at $1.8 billion (Berta, 2006). The goal of this quantitative study was to examine the relationship between job satisfaction, career orientation, and employee turnover intention for female hourly employees in southwestern Ohio full-service restaurants. The results of this study indicate job satisfaction has an influence on turnover intention for hourly female employees in full-service restaurants. In addition, job satisfaction is related to many turnover intention factors both when career orientation groups are pooled and when they are analyzed separately.
