Re prr279's comment.....I have the misfortune to live in the land of the great Wal Mart corporate offices (what a laugh, you should see them, they look more like one of their warehouses) and I also have a Wal Mart very near my home so I could shop there very readily but I have found that their 'save money, live better' catch phrase does not truly apply so, therefore,  I shop at any place but there as it is generally much cheaper.  oh and by the way JCP is not one of my shopping stops either.

Sears Holding should be in the top 5 of the most hated companies . They are probably in the top 10 of the most hated failing companies.....

Citigroup...I use my Shell card  regularly so no problems there...however they DID sell my  education loan  to Sallie May with no warning that I didn't appreciate but I still like them...ditto Bank of America who has been very good to me over the years. I personally have no problems with Citi, Bank of America , JCP  or Walmart.

Because of poor product(s) or services or billing scams we no longer do business with: A T & T, Firestone, Bridgestone, Dayton tires; Dish network  and ANYTHING to do with the State of California: State, County, City, governments:  etc they're all crooked.

why leave a comment. Nothing changes everything stay the same...We have no choice. And like george carlin once said we have only two choices  to make, paper or plastic or isle seat or window seat.. That's it, so our opinion is worthless.. why bother.....

What about Verizon T.V.???? (no problems with wireless so far) but T.V. sux!!! Customer service runs the gamut from surprisingly good to totally abysmal . My biggest beef is my monthly bill. I have ONE  tv and ONE dvr and the second tier of programing and my monthly bill runs over $200...really? I would go cable or satellite but my apartment complex uses either Verizon or Direct t.v.  and my apt balcony faces the wrong way for satellite so I basically had to adopt the attitiude of "if u can't beat 'em, join em" On the plus side I have to say that lately internet and tv have been ok...the first few months after moving in this apt it was one issue  after another and I got to the point that hot pokers in my eyes was more preferable to having to call or deal with  Verizon for anything. I will probably  ALWAYS dread having to call them and look forward to the day when I can drop them altogether for better service and programming. my vote for most hated company is defintiely Verizon. By the way I love JCP.

Very likely with some backroom manuevering Johnson will get a big pay raise and healthy stock options.   JC Penny is a mess and Johnson needs to be kicked out the door.  The other four companies are awful.  Their only chance is if someone decides to buy them.

It's funny how people on here mention how much they hate Walmart, yet they continue to shop there!

Worst company hands down is AT&T!!!!


They change plans and rates whenever they desire. They are impossible to get a hold of and rectify any complaint.


They are the all time SUCK company!!!

Wal  Mart is the pits and they should remember Sears when they tout themselves as the world's largest retailer, Sears was top dog for many years and then they developed a total disregard for their customers like Wal Mart has and look at them now so, Wal Mart, think about that.

People its all got to do with the changing times. Few people care or take pride in what they do anymore. Its nearly impossible to talk to a human being anymore, if you have a problem and its not on the list of what an automatic problem solving computerized answer machine can solve your SOL. Get used to it, it will get worse. We can't watch TV any more without 25 minutes out of every hour dedicated to the same tired **** commercials, or tell me why we have to have gay guys or gals shoved down our throats every time we turn on the TV. Any one that finds honey boo boo and her mother entertaining is on a one way road to the nut house. If they are the best society has to offer, were all in deep trouble.  Finally if any of us were as inept or as inefficient at our jobs as the congress and senate are, none of us would have a job.
