The current study aims to examine the relation between work life quality (structural-managerial, psychological, and social) and the third stage of career path (maintenance) among Esfahan Steel Company staff. The research method used was descriptive/correlational. The research population consisted of all Esfahan Steel Company staff in 2011, from which 214 out of 1200 individuals were selected through proportional stratified random sampling. The reliability of the results of the questionnaire was calculated though Cronbach's alpha coefficient with 0.7953 for work life quality and 0.7291 for the second stage of career path (induction). In order to determine the level of significance of each variable, the regression test was used; and then to confirm the regression coefficient, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was applied. The findings of this research show that as for the work life dimensions, the highest score belongs to "legalism in organization" at the structural-managerial dimension,and after that to "social integration in the workplace"at the social dimension
