Utilizing the convenience sampling, a total of 100 were taken as Samples with 94.81% retrieval rate. Based on the data collected, analysis were made with the use of frequencies and percentages, mean and standard for determining the demographic profile of respondents and impacts of the job satisfaction factors on employee job satisfaction. Correlation and Regression were applied in determining the significant relationships of the job satisfaction factors and employee job satisfaction as well as the relationship between job satisfaction and employee turnover. The research was surveyed also by questionnaires; Samples were drawn by using the simple random sampling technique. The results showed a significant negative correlation between job satisfaction and turnover intentions. This signifies that higher the job satisfaction, lower is the intent of a person to quit the job.
