The present study examined job-specific worry, as well as possible predictors of such worry, namelyjob-specific self-efficacy and supervisor dispositionism. 133 non-supervising crew members at differentdepartments onboard upmarket cruise ships filled in a questionnaire during one of their journeys. Findings show that employees report moderate amounts of job-specific worry and the galley crew reports significantlygreater amounts of worry than the other departments. Results also indicate that cruise ship crews worrysomewhat more than workers in the land based service sector. Furthermore it was found that supervisordispositionism, i.e. supervisors with fixed mindsets, was related to greater amounts of worry among thecrew. Surprisingly, job-specific self-efficacy was unrelated to job-specific worry.
