Description: This study examined the relationship of job stress with burnout, job satisfaction and health problems among employees working in a large North American-based multinational corporation in Malaysia (N = 305) and Pakistan (N = 325). Data were collected from employees by means of a structured questionnaire about overall job stress, job stressors, work overload, ambiguity, conflict, resource inadequacy, and three dependent variables. Bivariate multiple regression and hierarchical multiple regression analyses were used to test the nature of the relationship between the measures of job stress and the dependent variables. In both countries, significant relationships were found between the measures of job stress and burnout, job satisfaction, and health problems. Overall, 90 percent of comparisons supported the linear relationship between the measures of job stress and the dependent variables. Only in 10 percent of instances was the u-shaped/curvilinear relationship between the measures of job stress and dependent variables supported. Implications of the findings are discussed for future cross- cultural research. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
