The aim of this study was to examine the work-home role conflict among women employed in restaurants at Gondar, Ethiopia. Random sampling technique was applied for the survey which included 216 women restaurant employees. In the study, descriptive statistics, bivariate analysis, and structural equation model were used to test the hypotheses. According to the study results, there was no significant association between respondents marital status and motive to seek employment in restaurants. But there was significant difference between married and unmarried women seeking part-time and full-time employment. Stress due to family role variables and work role variables were found to be less than the average. However, inter-role stress for most variables was found to be more than average. These women reported that they skip family responsibilities and give priority to job (t(215)=1.494, p<.005) and that their husbands do not support them at home chores (t(215)=1.508, p<.005). Factor analysis established transactions between three factors: personal dynamics, family dynamics, and work dynamics. The results of confirmatory measurement model indicated that the measurement model was acceptable. The hypothesis that personal dynamics positively influenced work-life conflict was confirmed. The study revealed that the respondents spent more time with family which contributed to the positive influence.
