I agree with dish net work, how  did comcast miss the list. j c penny is #1 really. I can think of a dozen more deserving than pennies. All of the cable/satellite tv companies, all fuel companies that gouge us every day, the american government it is a business. #1 pennies really.

J C Penny, was a good store still have reasonable prices, But I quit going so often because they discontinued  St Johns Bay jeans. They were good quality, nicely priced, and were a favorite of many women because they fit good on the average lady, and also came in talls. Now if you go to J C Pennys

you can only buy teeny bopper jeans, in only small sizes, low waist bands and mostly skinny legs. I looked at in all their departments, and could not find a size 12 woman's. Many ladies have stopped shopping there for the same reason, it really hurt their business.

JCPenny will be gone in two years.  I don't know anybody who goes there anymore.

Bank of America has to be tied with Citigroup for the most hated Corporation in the World!   Like most banks they pay almost nil in interest on your accounts, but charge 80-95 times that for loaning out a dollar to its beleaguered customers.  then they nickel and dime you to death with fees, both trivial and hidden.   On top of that, the CEO's are getting paid millions, and the front line help treats customers like dirt.

Where is Fox "News" on this list?  They have done as much as anyone to destroy this country.

I don't hate anybody or any company. There are definitely companies that I have had the distinct displeasure of doing business with. The one that comes to mind is HSBC (Beneficial). To me, those people couldn't pour pee out of a pair of boots with directions in large print on both heels. They are the epitome of stupid. As for Walmart, I do a lot of shopping at Walmart and Sams and will continue to do so. I would never work for them again but I will buy products from them.

Walmart is the most cluttered and dirty store I've ever been in....! While all their "so called" workers stand around with their thumbs up their a**es! No one seems to be doing their jobs except for the cashiers?   Ask where something is and you have to wait FOREVER just to get an answer, if you get one at all !!!  And the all around attitude stinks too!  Never darken that doorstep again ....ever!
