Job satisfaction is an aggregate of employees’ consideration on the sort of work they accomplish, the tasks that make up their activities and work conditions. This study surveyed the job satisfaction of employees in private tourism organizations in Osun State, Nigeria. The technique used in selecting two hundred and eighty six employees in the study area was achieved by using the multistage sampling method. Primary data were picked up on employees’ job satisfaction via a structured questionnaire. Descriptive statistics and mean score were used for to analyse the data. Major employees’ intrinsic (motivator) factors identified were: responsibility (x̅ = 4.31), the work itself (x̅ = 4.15) and recognition (x̅ = 4.13) while major employees’ extrinsic (hygiene) factors identified were: security (x̅ = 4.2), quality of supervision (x̅ = 4.2) and relationship with peers (x̅ = 4.12). The result showed that there was a substantial difference (F = 15.973, p <0.05) in the job satisfaction of employees through the segments of the private tourism organizations. The study established that the job satisfaction of employees are not the similar crosswise the private tourism organizations in the study area. It was suggested that the studied organizations should create better opportunities for personal growth of employees in their organization by ensuring that their work load is manageable.
