10 Most Hated Companies in America:

Bank of America

BestBuy

Citigroup

Charter Communication

Dish Networks

Facebook

JC Penny

Netflix

T-Mobile

Wal-Mart

 

Smart management from these companies screwed their own customers, employees, and investors with their own greed, ignorant, and bite the hands that feed them.

No industry lies, steals, deceives, and kills more people in the U.S. than the insurance companies:

 

1.  You are never in good hands with any of them,

2. None of them are good neighbors,

3. Why would anybody believe a reptile with a phony accent -- no more Geckos please,

4. Progressive, the Nazi party claimed the same thing,

5. Any health care or mail order medication provider ...

I worked for Citi as a contractor.  It wasn't believable what an insane cesspool Citi is inside its fancy doors.  They have no responsibility toward their customers AT ALL.

People hate Penney's because they decided to drop the word "Sale" from every price in their building?

That's not a Penney's problem, that's just a problem with American consumers. Look at Kohl's. They don't have any prices listed in their stores that don't include the word "Sale". Penney's had many of the same products at the same prices. People just see the word "Sale" and immediately flock to their stores to buy stuff.

 

Sad

I agree about Dish Network. A very poor company with no people skills...

Where's Comcast.  I'd rather get a root canal than have to deal with Comcast.  There customer service is non existent.

Course to unstained hating Wal-Mart. You would have to live in a small town that put a lot of your Family and friends out of business. Receive all tax credits that Mom and Pop business could never get from towns and states. People shop there only because there cheap. I don't shop there because I know there cheap. They through there money over seas buying there products to make profits out the roof. Instead of putting it back in the communities they still it from. OOOOOO by the way before anyone try to defend there asses there family holds 4 of the top 10 most richest in the good old USA.

FIVE?  5?  V?

Why is this list so arbitrarily restricted.  There are a lot more than five corporate villains out there and every one of us is free to hate any one of them at any given time on an ad-hoc basis.

I agree with noodle...who cares?

These companies will fail in due time, it's unfortunate that the leaders of these companies think that they know better what's best for the customer.  They should be made to suffer with their own products and services and punishment.

Wells fargo.... After treating my wife (on a joint account) Like a 2nd class citizen (they wouldnt let her make changes to the account they insisted I come into a branch and do it...they gave her a $200 withdraw limit and me a $500. when I questioned this as sexist they said it is not sexist it is typical to give the secondary person a lower limit I said "What part of JOINT says there is a secondary and what makes you think it would be her?" they didnt have an answer)  they basicly made it more convieneint to get a new bank then to solve my problem (close compromised account and get me a new debitcard) I just opened a High interest checking account with 3% interest up to 15k with Lake Michigan Credit Union and i will give them my $13K in deposits.
