This study is conducted to explore faculty members’ job satisfaction, motivation, and job performance in a military college. Research population consists of 93 teachers that all of them participated in the study, thus it required no sampling. Data collection was done by instruments such as, job description index (JDI), job motives and job performance questionnaires that were designed with respect to research context. The reliability coefficients of the above-mentioned instruments were respectively 0.96, 0.91, and 0.90.
Research findings showed that faculty members’ job satisfaction, motivation and performance were rated above mean. Satisfaction about salary and promotion opportunity were rated less than the other components.Both basic and growth needs of the subjects were found above the average. The most important factor in job satisfaction of subjects was the nature of the job, namely teaching and instruction. Power and spiritual motives can be used to predict faculty members’ job performance. Ultimately, job motivation, job satisfaction, and their interaction can predict job performance.
