Abstract: This study investigated the existing difference in perceived fairness of pay, promotion and job satisfaction among the Oromiya medical personnel. It also examined whether perceived fairness of pay and promotion held by medical personnel affects their job satisfaction. The contributions of age, sex, service, gender role attitude and education level to the variance of job satisfaction were also examined. = = 214 (M 93, F 121) medical personnel were chosen randomly after stratification based on their sex and educational level. Medical personnel from Jima, Asela and Nazreth hospitals participated in the study by completing the quesitonnaire. Moreover, interviews were conducted with three Metterins to supplement the questionnaire. ANOVA, index of occupational segregation, t-test, multiple regression analysis and rank order correlation were employed in the analyses of the data. The result indicated that women and men tend to occupy different positions in medical professions. But there was no statistically significant gender difference in perceived fairness of pay, promotion and job satisfaction. Besides, pay, and promotion have high significant contribution to the variance of job satisfaction. Though not significant, some degree of job satisfaction was explained by the linear regression of educational level. When ANOVA was employed for the four variables: pay, promotion, educational level and sex, surprisingly, the coefficient of determination reaches .81 (R2 = .81) indicating the importance of the interaction of these variables. Furthermore, males preferred good pay, opportunity to use 'one's skill or creativity and job security more than other job characteristics, while females preferred job security, good pay and interesting work in descending order. Finally conclusions, recommendations and suggestion for further investigation were made.
