This study aims to conduct an empirical investigation of the perceived impact of heavy work investment based on the positive impact of job satisfaction and the negative impact of burnout. Data was collected from 200 respondents working in the e-commerce industry and analyzed using structural equation modeling (SEM). The results showed significant direct and indirect effects of sharing job satisfaction and burnout on heavy work investment. The results show that a person’s personality can affect a person’s work attachment and workaholics in doing his job. In contrast, the work attachment that a person feels can affect the job satisfaction that has been done, but in fact, the work attachment felt by employees cannot be influenced by fatigue factors. In line with the application of workaholics carried out by employees does not affect their job satisfaction. Instead, workaholics can affect a person’s fatigue in doing their job. Theoretically, the results of this study provide evidence regarding the effect of heavy work investment on fatigue and job satisfaction in a company. The managerial implication of the results of this study is the planning of a new model in the investigation of psychological health derived from the control of heavy work investment.
