It's not the good or bad businesses that have caused this economic mess we are it. Barak Obama had a problem in the banking and financial sectors, when he took office, that should have been fixed within 6 months. Instead he proceeded to screw up the whole economy with his "9 to 5' socialist policies of attacking all the business sectors and his deficit spending demands..

Ronnie Electra is correct, in that this  topic/poll should have been  two seperate lists:  the private sector  and  the  public/govt agencies  sector.  Congress is the Number 1 most hated.

Many posts on this topic... But you  all have  it wrong.  From employees' point of view,  USAirways is  definitely  the No. 1  most hated!

I'm surprised to see T-Mobile on the list. Their customer service used to be second-to-none. Then, around the time the AT&T buy-out rumors started, their customer service took a hit, and I assumed it was because AT&T's customer service has always been horrible and that they were transitioning AT&T's employees. Then it turned out the sale never happened, and T-Mobile's customer service just stayed in that reduced state. I don't know what happened or why. I used to always, always, always get a local customer service rep -- usually someone right here in Texas, with crystal clear English. Now all I get are the typical Indian outsourced workers. It's a shame.

A couple of years ago AIG might have been at the top of the list.  What about GM and Chrysler, a couple of bailout babies?

What happened to Bank of America.  I am a disabled Vet and the nearest VA hospital is about 70 miles from where I live. About once or twice a year I need to go to the hospital for a procedure that the local VA clinic cannot do.  I get a mileage check from the VA for my travel and the check was drawn on Bank of America.  I would try to cash the check at Bank of America and they wanted to charge me $5 to cash a $12 check because I do not have an account with them.  I called the VA and they said that BofA was disbursing VA travel checks and have had numerous complaints about BofA. The VA has stopped using BofA and are issuing government checks. This shows that BofA is a blood sucking leach one the average family and only concerned about their investors and high paid upper management.  Just look at all the sneaky deals that they have been caught in lately with the housing market. I find very few people that will even walk in a BofA.
