Time Warner Oceanic should be on this list. I've heard people scream about Comcast for years. Comcast was outstanding compared to Time Warner Oceanic. Comcast is on time and they do everything they say they'll do. Time Warner Oceanic is the polar opposite. Next time I move I'll check out Hawaiian Telecom, that can't be any worse then Time Warner Oceanic.

I was an independent Satellite installer for Dish Network for years, after they gained a large enough customer base, they decided to use dirty tactics to try and force us out of Business so they could pay their own employees a low hourly wage.It worked, my Business dried up and I had to close shop.After being in the Business for 20 years...Will never use their service if it was the last one around.

My list of the most-hated companies in America

 

Comcast

Comcast

Comcast

Best Buy

Dish

 

I've never done business with BOA or AT&T but reading about the problems they give their customers, I stay away from them.  Comcast is horrible, I mean absolutely without a doubt, horrible from the top to bottom.  Folks if you've thought about switching to Comcast, don't switch.  As for "Worst Buy", shopped their once, the managers, cashiers and sales associates are clueless dumb*sses.

I had a wonderful experience with Comcast and would recommend them to friends and family alike. I had a bundle of the voice, internet, and cable. The voice i seldom used however the internet was the absolute fastest i've ever had and the cable offering was great. Their streampix was probably what i considered to be an added bonus. The platform was user friendly and it truly afforded one the ability to carry your services with you wherever you go. The only improvement i would suggest is that you be able to access your dvr more completely. Now i have ATT uverse and i hate it. The online platform is terrible and you can't even set a reminder on their tv. There tv has far less features and is actually more expensive even in the bundle. I have U450. I would not recommend ATT uverse. Their technology has many limitations.

Sears Roebuck should be number one.

I never get people who say Time Warner is abad company.  I have had them in four seperate holes that I have been in and have it in my Grandfather and fathers house.  One of the best service oriented companies I have ever dealt with.  Or is it that Dish, At&T and that other loser company just suck so bad?

I'm not surprised that Dish Network made this list.  Nobody likes it when they lose their TV service with every Goddamn ****ing storm!  This is why I prefer cable.  To those that say satellite TV is cheaper than cable, I say "you get what you pay for...sucker!"

JCP needs to kick Ron Jo to the curb as fast as possible and in a very public way.  If they want to hire a CEO that will connect them back to the American public maybe they should hire me!

COMCAST here in Washington State, has to be one of the worst companies "if you are a current subscriber” They charge you well over $200 plus dollars for their phone, internet and cable service which includes charges for all cable boxes /equipment, etc.  New subscribers get lots of benefits like, 1 DVR, plus 3 HD boxes with no monthly equipment charges, the new equipment, can record - so you can watch any recorded show from any TV set. When I called customer service to inquire about the pricing and new free equipment deal, they told me that I was not entitled since I am a current customer; it’s only for our new customers.  WOW what happened to those of us, who have been good customers for many years – guess they feel we do not count any more.  I can't wait until my two year agreement is up, in May - then I'm changing to - Direct TV"

You would think that a company that has all your services would want to help a long time customer, by offering them something for all the years of paying your bill on time and dealing with all their equipment issues IE: internet connect problems, etc. "but no way" guess we just don’t count any more. I am looking forward to paying my bill to a company who is concerned about me as a customer, not their bottom line profits.

America, if you agree with my observation of how customers are treated by COMCAST, post your comments and be heard, only by sharing our concerns will companies be aware of how we feel about how they do business.

Thanks a concerned customer.

For the most part, working at JCP has been a positive experience thus far.  I hired in as seasonal help right after Thanksgiving last year.  I had been unemployed and looking for a job for 8 months.

I was one of 4 people that were asked to stay on after the holidays, and I am greatful for the job.

 

That said, I have heard many things from other employees who were around before "The Man From Apple" took over.  One gal was disappointed about a manager who was respected and well liked being let go after 31 years with the company.

 

I have heard mixed reactions from customers regarding the new pricing policies.  Alot of people are disappointed that there aren't any coupons.

Some are disappointed in the company's  decision to discontinue certain well-known brands. 

I'm happy to be working.  I hope JCP can pull through the hard times.

The #1 company should be Government Motors. They sold out to the government and the UAW and screwed everybody else. I own two GM vehicles and will NEVER own another.
