Abstract

This study examines the job satisfaction of administrative staff in federal and state universities in South West Nigeria
universities. It also investigates whether working experience of these administrative staff will significantly influence their job satisfaction.
A self-constructed questionnaire titled (JSQ) was used to elicit information from the respondents 400 subjects in different departments
were rated by their supervisors or heads of departments. The selection was done through multistage techniques from four universitiestwo
federal and two states universities. A descriptive research of the survey type was used. The data were subjected to t-test analysis
and one way ANOVA for the analysis. The findings revealed that there is no significant difference between the job satisfaction of
administrative staff in federal and state universities. Furthermore, working experience will not significantly influence the job satisfaction of
administrative staff. Recommendations were made based on the findings that the government and the management of these universities
should maintain uniformity in the organizational climate, salary and working conditions of the workers to get the best from them. If all
these are well catered for, working experience will be insignificant to job satisfaction.
