Abstract

This field experiment investigated the effects of exchange‐inducing treatments on pre‐ and postentry commitment of military recruits. Behavioral (volunteering for combat service and turnover), intentional (willingness to commit to combat service), and attitudinal (commitment, satisfaction, perceived fairness, and perceived choice variety) outcomes are examined. Two exchange‐inducing experimental groups, one receiving realistic job preview and another receiving decisionmaking training, were compared to 3 control groups. Results indicated that preentry commitment was significantly higher among participants in the exchange‐inducing conditions. However, the effect of decisionmaking training lasted longer than the effect of realistic job preview.
