The purpose of this quantitative cross-sectional survey design research was to examine the differences between 227 full-time and part-time (employee status) faculty and staff (employee position) members at two upstate New York colleges and their self-reported levels of stress and their perceptions of job satisfaction. The data suggested that significant differences exist in the area of employee status (full-time versus part-time) in 6 of 12 dimensions of stress: overload, resources and communication, job security, pay and benefits, psychological well-being, and job satisfaction (aspects of the job). This research was the first such study in the United States to use the ASSET shortened organizational stress evaluation tool to collect data about employee status and employee position in higher education institutions.
