Predictors of potential for job turnover, including job satisfaction and burnout, were examined for a national, stratified random sample of Air Force Family Advocacy Programme (FAP) workers in the USA. Respondents were more likely to intend to leave if they were emotionally exhausted, had lower levels of intrinsic job satisfaction, and were dissatisfied with their salary and promotion opportunities. Implications of the findings for research and practice are discussed.
