We want to analyze the impact of compensation concerning the OCB and the moderate effect of the rank empirically. As a result of this study, the correlation of variable is partially effective between salary (material compensation), social cognition (social compensation), job importance, job interest, job challenge and OCB. The rank which is moderate variable affects strongly negative. In short, strengthening reward for freshmen improves competence of the employee and the concept of reward is more effective than other factors. Therefore we need to introduce personnel institution which includes broad material reward, social cognition, job importance, job interest, job challenge to enhance the OCB and narrow difference of the rank in service industry. After this study, we need to select subject and collect sample within extension scope. Also we need to diversify and specify the type of reward.
