Registered Medical Technologists, Pay, Fringe Benefits, Job Satisfaction, COVID-19, Tertiary Hospitals


The COVID-19 pandemic has gravely affected the health sector of the Philippines, most especially the frontliners. The Registered Medical Technologists (RMTs) and healthcare workers were required to work longer, consecutive shifts, and in a higher-risk environment. This impacted their work performance in the laboratory and their satisfaction with work. The study aimed to determine the level of satisfaction of RMTs working in Private and Public Tertiary hospitals in Cavite and if there is a significant difference in satisfaction among the different sociodemographic groups. The questionnaire utilized a cross-sectional research design and a random sampling technique with 30 respondents. The questionnaire was adapted from Paul E. Spector’s Job Satisfaction Survey, which included a six-point agree-disagree scale encompassing pay and fringe benefits. ANOVA and Independent Samples T-test were used to evaluate whether there was a significant difference between groups regarding their satisfaction level on pay and fringe benefits. Most of the respondents (46.67%) were dissatisfied with both pay and fringe benefits. Most respondents (53.33%) were dissatisfied with pay, while most respondents (70%) were ambivalent regarding fringe benefits. ANOVA showed that there was no significant difference in the level of satisfaction on both pay and fringe benefits between age (p=0.21), sex (p=0.08), marital status (p=0.36), and monthly income (p=0.16). The findings of the study revealed that the level of satisfaction regarding pay and fringe benefits of RMTs is low, with the majority showing dissatisfaction and there was no significant difference in the satisfaction level on both pay and fringe benefits amongst sociodemographic groups.
