Introduction: Job stress can result from people’s perceptions of an imbalance between job demands and their abilities to cope those demands. Stress can affect individuals and lead to job dissatisfaction.  This study was conducted to assess job stress and the relationship between job satisfaction and different dimensions of job stress among refinery control room workers in a refinery located in the south of Iran.

 Method: In this descriptive-analytical research all 100 workers of an oil refinery control rooms were studied. Job stress and job satisfaction was measured using standard questionnaires provided by national institute of mental health (NIMH) and Robbins respectively. After collecting, data were analyzed using SPSS ver.16 software. In this regard Pearson correlation test was used to determine the probable relationship between different dimensions of stress and job satisfaction.

Results: In this study 62.08 percent of workers were categorized as having high level of stress. In job satisfaction case, 9.2, 27.6, 28.7, 16.1 and 18.4 of workers were classified as totally dissatisfied, dissatisfied, not satisfied nor dissatisfied, satisfied, and totally satisfied respectively. Pearson correlation test revealed a negative significant correlation between job satisfaction and all studied dimensions of job stress (p= 0.01).

Conclusion: As job satisfaction is related to different dimensions of job stress, job satisfaction of control room workers can be increased through improvement of different dimensions of job stress including interpersonal relationships, physical conditions of work and job interest.
