The study showed that teachers in the Balakong area were dissatisfied withtheir job. They were dissatisfied in eleven of the elements related to job satisfaction. However they were satisfied with security provided by the job (mean = 3.2). There was a significant and strong relationship between personal life with working experience (Eta =.51, P <.01), age (Eta =.42, p <.01), sex (rpb =.43, P <.01) and salary (Eta =.31, P <.01). Among the elements of intrinsic factors, work itself showed the highest mean (mean = 2.5). The lowest mean was shown by promotion (mean = 1. 9). In the hygiene factors job security showed the highest mean (mean = 3.2) and co-worker showed the lowest mean (mean = 1.9). The study did not support Herzberg's view that job satisfaction was influenced by intrinsic factors and dissatisfaction by Hygiene factors.
