El objetivo del presente estudio fue analizar la invarianza factorial de la Escala de Satisfacción Laboral Genérica de Mac Donald y Mac Intyre, en Argentina y Brasil. Se desarrolló un estudio instrumental de corte transversal sobre una muestra no probabilística de trabajadores (nArgentina= 663; nBrasil= 672). Los resultados indican que la escala es invariante a nivel configural (SBχ2/gl= 2.06, GFI= .96, CFI= .97, RMSEA= .03), métrico (δGFI=.009, δCFI= .008, δRMSEA= .006) y escalar (δGFI=.007, δCFI= .009, δRMSEA= .004), mientras que es parcialmente invariante, a nivel estricto. A su vez, la comparación de las medias latentes y observadas muestra que los participantes brasileros se encuentran más satisfechos con su trabajo (MBrasil= 3.86, DEBrasil= .91; MArgentina= 3.52, DEArgentina= .90; t= 8.54, p < .000; CR= 11. 062, p < .000), aunque se trata de efectos pequeños (d= .37; r= .18). Los resultados obtenidos indican que la escala se ajusta al modelo de invariancia factorial estricta para todos los ítems, a excepción de tres de ellos que solo alcanzaron invariancia fuerte.
