These attitudes were also unrelated to later job performance as measured by supervisor ratings and absenteeism. Denova (1969) found that a job training program for aerospace trainees was effective in improving job satisfaction and that favorable job attitudes were negatively correlated with subsequent turnover. Finch (197 1) showed that trainee's attitudes toward automotive repair were uniquely associated with the accuracy of automobile trouble-shooting performance after completion of training.
