This study surveyed 334 retail sales people employed in former state-owned, private and joint venture retail firms regarding reward valence, instrumentality, effortperformance expectations, job satisfaction and organizational commitment. Demographic and firm ownership variables were a factor in workers' preference for rewards, effort performance expectations, job satisfaction and organizational commitment.
