Abstract: This study focused on examining the relationship of independent variables (three-component commitment to organization and occupation) with dependent variables (intention to quit, job performance and Organizational Citizenship Behavior). As essential, the moderating effect of the status of respondents (production-line worker vs. technical staff) on their relationships was also hypothesized to investigate in this research. The study was carried out among subjects from production-line workers (n=162) and technical staffs (n=77) employed in a manufacturing firm (clothing) in Shenzhen, China for testing purpose of the hypotheses. The findings indicated that the three-component commitment to organization and occupation correlated positively to each other. Also, the three-component occupational commitment emerged as a significant predictor of intention to quit the occupation and job performance. But, it was partially supported when it was used to predict OCB. On the other hand, the three-component organizational commitment was only partially supported on the prediction of intention to quit the organization and OCB, and job performance was not predicted significantly by organizational commitment. Furthermore, the results of multiple regression analysis supported the hypothesized moderating effect of the status of respondents on the relationships between three-component model of commitment and the dependent variables partially. The technical staff was interpreted to have a stronger moderating effect on the following relationships: between affective commitment to occupation and intention to quit the occupation; between continuance commitment to occupation and intention to quit the occupation; between affective commitment to organization and intention to quit the organization; between affective commitment to occupation and job performance. Generally, the results of relationship and regression analyses were partially consistent with the hypothesized model. Implications of the findings, limitations and directions for future research were discussed.
