This study used a questionnaire approach which is divided into 2 parts; Part A focuses the level of job satisfaction which were designed by the researcher and section B consists of the factors of job satisfaction translated from the Job Descriptive Index (JDI) developed by Smith, Kendall and Hulin in 1969 based on the Herzberg Two Factors Theory. The results of the pilot study showed that the instrument is very convenient to use and the reliability of the questionnaire accuracy was .85 for job satisfaction accuracy and .93 for Job Descriptive Index (JDI). The results showed that the level of job satisfaction of academic staffs are at a high level, namely (mean = 3.83, SP = 0.572). The results of correlation analysis showed a correlation between the work environment (r = 0708, p <0.01), promotion (r = 0.500, p <0.01), salary (r = 0.345, p <0.01), supervisors (r = 0.454, p <0.01) and colleagues (r = 0529, p <0.01) with job satisfaction among academic staffs at public universities. In summary, it appears that the work environment, opportunities for promotion and colleagues affect the job satisfaction of academic staff at the UA.
