Just had a bad experience at Sams Club in WV today - again all management's fault. Why do they hire these guys?

All companies see us(the american consumer) coming! Customer Service is a bad joke in this country anymore. It's the companies. They don't value us anymore.

Overall good list.  There are some other bad companies, but the five on this list certainly belong on an "worst of" list.

Currently not having any issues what-so-ever;  I do business with only one of the companies on the list, and it's all good there...

I am very disappointed that Time Warner cable is not on the top five list (instead of Dish). I have been a customer of both and my experience with Dish was far better than that with TWC. When my current contract is up with TWC, I will probably return to Dish.

Every company including the US government has pissed someone off at one time or another. I guess if I were going to hate...it would be toward the one entity that has the power to take my $ without giving me the choice of whether or not  to give it up. My only real complaint; a bunch of old men living the high life in D.C. deciding how much of my $ to take and what they want to spend it on.

Personally, I think Walmart should be the Most hated Company. Sam Walton should be kicking and screaming in his grave over what his offspring has done to that company. Walmarts are junky cluddered eye sores,and  the employees look and act as if  they have felonys, and they dont mind sharing with you their hatered for their employer. My biggest Thing with walmart is THERE IS NEVER ENOUGH CASHIERS AND YOU STAND IN LINE FOREVER!!!! I have shopped at Target since 2009 and it was the best decision for me. Target is a bit more pricey but the stores are beautiful, excellent customer service and they CALL FOR BACK UP CASHIERS WHEN THE LINES GET LONG!!!!

Talk about bad companies Godiva is very bad riding roughshod over their staff  showing no respect or dignity to their underlings.
Welcome to servitude, alive and well at your Godiva chocolate store.

Finally! I know now, that I am not alone, when I say that T-Mobile has the worst customer service.

It took twelve years to escape from the infamous "two year contract".  When ever I had a problem, it would take hours and hours, and transfers to different agents, who all said the same thing...You must pay the $20.00 for the third party billing that had been "renewed" for another month.  Since I never authorized the third party subscription for a game of some sort, my cell was suspended, for lack of payment to T-Mobile.  I was expected to wait for the third party to refund me, which would take (only) up to 45 days.  How much to restore my cell?  $20.00!  With every change on my plan, I was slapped with another two year contract   I had enough!  My cell phone and T-Mobile Stick were suspended more times than I could count.  I froze my cell phone account, and went shopping for another company.  I switched my own cell number to another company, and then paid off my double two year contracts, for a zero balance.  Low and behold, the next thing I get in the mail, is another bill from a collection agency saying that I still owe $300.00 plus dollars to T-Mobile!  When all was said and done, I sold my old cell phone, with ALL of its' accessories, at my yard sale for $7.00.

Goodwill Indusries should be on this list as well. I have never worked for such a blood sucking company for so little pay. They cut hours of full time employees so they get no more benifits, we're talking about families and elderly employees who live paycheck to paycheck. That happened right before christmas with no notice. Then turned around and hired over 10 more people. If you were unfortunate enough to catch that horrible flu, you were wrote up for missed days, Dr.'s note or not. They talk about helping train people for work, in the 3yrs I was there they only hired one person with disabilities and made his time there a horrible experience. They are a For Profit company , no significant over head, all their product is donated!!!!!

Well, they probably could have added another hundred hated companies.  But, with horrible customer service from foreign countries and putting stock before employees and customers, they would have a difficult time finding a top ten best company list...

To be honest, I have to agree with a lot of posts. Bank of America should have been on the list. Same deal with Electronic Arts.

Why is Dish on this list.  Their service is terrific, their employees are professional and courteous.  The price is right.  Direct has the very worst service in the world.  A few years ago I tried to get Direct TV and their tech stood me up one day and rescheduled 5 times the next.  And they're priced too high.  Comcast is a joke - they just keep raising their prices.  When service is lost you have to wait 5 days for an appointment.  I'll stick with Dish, thanks.

[BRIEFING.COM] The Nasdaq Composite (+0.5%) and S&P 500 (+0.2%) posted modest gains on Thursday, but not before enduring a morning dip into the red, which took place in reaction to reports indicating Russia has commenced military exercises on the Ukrainian border.

The news from Europe knocked the key indices from their early highs, while giving a boost to safe-haven assets like gold futures (+0.5% to $1290.80/ozt), Treasuries (10-yr yield -1 bps to 2.69%), and the Japanese yen (102.30 ... More
