The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of personal, family, and job characteristics on married male postal delivery workers' overall life satisfaction. For this purpose, we surveyed 263 married male postal delivery workers between October 1st to 21st, 2008, and analyzed the data with multiple regression analysis. The results of this study were as follows: First, postal workers earned a low level of income, and their quality of health was not good relative to their age. They had severe work-family conflict, but could support and communicate with colleagues well. Second, even though they felt little opportunities and difficulties in lives, they moderately satisfied with everyday lives. Third, 43% of their satisfaction was explained by personal, family, and job related variables. Levels of workfamily conflict (β=-.31***), work support with colleagues (β=.25***), family sharing time (β=.14*), and health (β=.12*) were especially important variables affecting their satisfaction.
Keywords: married male postal delivery workers, life satisfaction, work-family conflict, work support between colleagues, family sharing time, health
