The present study was conducted with a view to investigate the nature of role stress in the public and private sector industries. The study was conducted on a sample of 120 middle level managers, 60 from the public sector (Telephone Industry of Pakistan, Haripur); and 60 from the Private Sector (Kohinoor Textiles Mills, Rawalpindi, 30; and Sarhad Colony Textile Mills, Nosherah, 30). Results were non-significant except on the dimension of Inter Role Distance which was higher in the private sector. The correlational analysis revealed that there was not significant relationship between job satisfaction and the various sources of stress in the public sector. In the case of private sector, a significant relationship was obtained of job satisfaction with Role Stagnation, Role Expectation Conflict, Role Isolation, Personal Inadequacy, and overall stress. The step-wise regression showed a significant contribution by Role Erosion on job satisfaction for the total sample. A curvilinear relationship was also revealed between age and stress where the degree of stress is higher among the young and the old as compared to the middle aged group.
