ANDRADE, Alexsandro Luiz de; OMAR, Alicia  e  SALESSI, Solana. Generic Job Satisfaction Scale: Psychometric Qualities of the Version Adapted to Portuguese. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.4, pp. 361-370. ISSN 1677-0471.

The aim of this study was to adapt Macdonald & MacIntyre's Generic Job Satisfaction Scale for use with Brazilian workers. The study used a sample of 681 workers (Mage=34.20 years; SD=8.5) from the Brazilian Southeast, of whom 63% were male. The exploratory factor analysis indicated a one-dimensional structure and confirmatory analyses showed that a re-specified model was the one that presented the most satisfactory fit. The scale presented evidence of adequate convergent validity (AVE=0.72) and discriminant validity (√AVE=0.85). Positive correlations with organizational commitment and civility, as well as negative correlations with intentions to quit, corroborated the criterion validity. The reliability indices obtained (composite reliability=0.75, and ω = 0.77) demonstrate the adequate internal consistency and composite reliability of the instrument. The adapted scale presents evidence of reliability and validity, which makes it suitable for use with Brazilian populations.
