5 most-hated companies in America
Ever walk out (or pull your investment out) of a business vowing that you will never, ever return? Here's where customers, employees or stockholders are fed up.
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.
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.
