Özet

The purpose of this study is to reveal whether there is a difference between job satisfaction and intention to quit levels of the private security officers in terms of the wage they receive in accordance with employment types (Public-Private sector). The population of the study includes the private security officers working in İstanbul. Random sampling is conducted in the study. As a result of the questionnaires carried out in the context of the quantitative paradigm, 6249 data were found analyzable. In this study, the job satisfaction scale, developed by Weiss et al. (1967), and the intent to quit scale, developed by Scott et al. (1999), were used. According to the results, there is a statistically significant difference among job satisfaction and intention to quit levels of the private security officers employed in the private sector at each wage category. However, although there is a statistically significant difference among intention to quit levels of private security officers employed in the public sector at each wage category, there is an only statistically significant difference at maximum wage category regarding job satisfaction level.
