The study explored the relationship between neuroticism and Job satisfaction. Employees with low levels of neuroticism experience higher levels of job satisfaction. The banking environment requires employees with low levels of neuroticism due to the nature of services they offer. A quantitative technique was adopted, to determine the relationship between neuroticism and job satisfaction SAS 9.1, Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient, ANOVA and Waller- Duncan K-ratio T-Test and T-Test were used. Findings indicated employees had low level of criticism and were satisfied with their jobs.
