This study aimed to evaluate antecedents of employees' intention to leave. This study evaluated a relationship between interpersonal relationship and role ambiguity with employees' job satisfaction and its impact toward intention to leave. A number of 63 employees from seven event organizations in Medan were participated in this study. Data were gathered by using self-administered questionnaires.

This study showed that interpersonal relationship had a positive and significant effect toward job satisfaction event organizer's employees. The presence of role ambiguity had a negative and significant effect toward job satisfaction. As for employees' intention to leave, interpersonal relationship and role ambiguity may reduce employees' intention but its effect was not significant. The evidence showed that job satisfaction significantly affect the intention to leave. Role ambiguity affect employees' intention to leave positively whereas job satisfaction negatively affect them. Job satisfaction also acted as significant mediating variable for interpersonal relationship and role ambiguity to affect employees' turnover intention.
