It is an empirical study and a sample of 84 full time employees of FESCO (Faisalabad Electric Supply Company, Pakistan) was taken. The results of this study reveal that job rewards are proved to be strong determinant of job satisfaction. Job satisfaction is more related to extrinsic rewards for employees than intrinsic rewards. The age differences have moderating effect on job satisfaction as it increases with rise in age.
