Review of literature revealed that there is dearth of empirical studies on the antecedents of job burnout particularly among working mothers in post-consolidation banks in Nigeria. The present study therefore examined the main and interaction effects of work-family conflict and job stress on job burnout among working mothers in post-consolidation banks in Nigeria. Data were collected from a randomly selected sample of 311 working mothers using Maslach’s Burnout Inventory, Work-family Conflict Scale, and Job Stress Scale. The ages of the participants ranged from 26 to 57 years with a mean of 10.14 years (SD = 9.23). Moderated hierarchical regression was used to test the study hypotheses. Results showed that work-family conflict and job stress had a significant main and interaction effects on overall job burnout and its three dimensions. These findings suggest the need for bank management to introduce and implement work-life balance policy, conduct stress audits, and re-design the aspect of their job taxing working mothers.
