    High turnover rate of employment is still a main concerned in generation Y especially in hotel and restaurant industry. The main purpose of conducting this research project mainly is to examine the factors that influence job performance of generation Y. There are 3 factors we have identified that will influence job performance of generation Y, which are personality, employees’ ability and job satisfaction. Besides, there are total 4 hypotheses being constructed in this research project to be tested. We analyzed the hypotheses using T-test, ANOVA test, multiple regression analysis and Pearson correlation analysis. Besides, a total of 450 set of questionnaires were distributed, but only 404 set of questionnaires was returned to us. The data collected are being analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS). The correlation and multiple regression analysis specify that the 3 independent variables (personality, employees’ ability and job satisfaction) have significant and positive relationship with the dependent variable (job performance). As a result, it provides us a correct guideline and directs us to achieve our research goal and objective. Finally, the research project also provides with clear view of limitations therefore brought forward some useful recommendations and lastly conclusion indicating that the all 4 hypotheses constructed is acceptable.
