I would add the whole mobile telephone industry.  The US has the worst and most costly mobile phone network with the worst service than any country in the world.

And Walmart plans to hire 100,000 Vets over the next 5 years.  And what ~ pay them minimum wages & keep them under FT working hour requirements so that they need to turn to the US government to supplement their income & living conditions.  Also, Walmart plans to buy US?  It works out to something like 1.5% of all it's business yet the US creates 70% of its revenue.  When 70% of Walmart's purchases are American made, than start to brag.  This comapny has done more to damage America and clowns like Romney have made their billions feeding this POS company all the outsourced manufacturing jobs.  Do you think China gives a RAT'S **** about the health and well being of US citizens.  It's contributing to poisoning us from within while still lining the UBER rich REPUBS who support sending jobs overseas!

To start with our Federal Government any and all parts of it. Next any large company, all they won't to do is to try to work you in the ground and won't you to work with no insurance, no retirement.

Just make them money. Something happens to you it had to be your fault. Will get somebody else that came do the job. I hate them all.

Changed from DTV after 15 years to Dish Network . My DTV bill went up $45 and I asked about customer loyalty discount they said no way . So I switched to Dish. I get much more including DVR and extra room access. I'm paying less and never been happier. Never thought it possible but absolute truth.

Gee , AOL is not on the list I see. Maybe that's because they're relatively obscure now.

Crapple (apple) is far the worst company! Why was it not 1st on this list? Or even on it at all?

Wal-Mart has become so bad I don't shop there unless absolutely necessary. They never restock. most shelves are empty. the clothing is way below  average, very poor quality. some staples have expired dates on them "buyer beware".

I love Wal  Mart, Thank God for them,  especially in struggling economic times, I always shop Wally World and not ashamed of companies that keep the prices in check.. Nobody should hate a thriving company, especially in what they add to the economy

in the number of employees and the business they bring in from outside the area, especially rural America..

Misleading, it  should be most hated by investors, As for Dish, they can irritate me, but our service hasn't been so bad and I looked this morning and I have AMC. When did you write the article? Most hated Monsanto.

monsanto is by far the worst company in america from corporate bullying to contaminating our food no matter where we buy it. we cant even get good seed anymore because of their intellectual property rights and patents for their franken food. if monsanto isnt at the top of your list do a google search and a you tube search of them. the truth is out there if your not afraid to find out.

We all have companies we hate because of some kind of bad experience.  Yet, for those that say they hate Walmart, I bet you still shop there or at Best Buy.  I, for one, like some of the low prices at Walmart and the money I save on their products.  Most companies are all about making money... that's it!  Bottom line!  If we as customers/consumers do not speak up and voice our opinion then these most hated companies will just get worse.  If you do not like seeing "made in China" on most of the products sold in the USA, then take a stand and do something about it.  Those in business are in business to make money and, sadly, most do not care about ethics or pleasing their customers.  Complaining about something will not fix it, so stand up and take action.

This is an accurate list of companies to hate. I have my own list. I detest Dell Computers, my bank, Wal-Mart, Southwest Airline, and most fast food restaurants.
