The objective of this study was to explore the determinants of employee job satisfaction of Agricultural extension Officers, and to show how such satisfaction influence the Agricultural extension officers‟ performance of their tasks. The research design used in this study was case study in which qualitative and quantitative information were collected. Both probability and non probability sampling techniques were used. In probability sampling the simple random sampling and stratified sampling techniques were used. In non probability sampling, the purposive sampling technique was used to get the sample size. The data collection tools employed in this study were the interview, questionnaire and documentary review. These tools were used for the purpose of obtaining information from respondents in order to get relevant and accurate information. Qualitative method was used in data collection and analysis so as to allow the reporting of summary results in descriptive terms to be given with a specific degree of confidence. Tables were used in presenting the collected and analysed data. Moreover, the study revealed that Agricultural Extension Officers in WDC were not satisfied with the job due lack of both extrinsic and intrinsic motivation factors. This was reported to happen because of delayed salaries and untimely promotion of employees at work. The findings of the study also assert that, WDC have challengeable working environment to its employees in terms of social services (such as transport means, electricity, marketing place, safe and clean water and remoteness of most of the villages to mention but a few). Finally, the study revealed that working environment has been affecting negatively job satisfaction of agricultural extension officers in WDC. The study recommend that WDC should mobilise enough fund for motivating employees, the central government should prepare a separate reward policy for agricultural extension officers instead of having one reward policy for all public servants since nature of work differs from one profession to another and agricultural extension officers should be willing to work in all villages in Wanging‟ombe district despite of difficulty working environment since en_US
