The aim of this study is to determine the effects of organizational structure (formalization and centralization) and organizational climate on job stress in a non‐Western context. Data were collected from a sample of 151 salespersons working in the stock broking industry of Malaysia. Regression results demonstrated that both structural variables (formalization and centralization) have a positive influence on job stress. Organizational climate dimension, however, has no effect on stress. Implications for managerial practice and future research are provided.
