The study was conducted on 275 organized retail sales persons from Mumbai and its suburbs. The participants were studied using The Life Orientation Test Revised (LOT-R), Multidimensional Health Profile-Psychosocial Functioning (MHP-P) and NEO-Five Factor Inventory (NEO-FFI 3). The data were analyzed in terms of the independent-samples t-test and coefficients of correlation. The women employees found higher on global stress, anxious affect and reported more somatic complaints than men employees.
