I Work For Macy's,mosst of the sales associates work only on commission, and there is no way to explain all the percentage of returns that we get, every week it is almost the same percentage per associate, that doesn't make any sense.  It goes against your commission.

FedEx office is the worst company to work for.  You're not known as an person, you're known as a number. You're timed on how fast you ring out customers. If you're under their suggested time you are counseled. No small chit chat with customers, ask them if they're interested in a stapler and ring them out. They fully admit they don't consider the personal lives of their employees, they only consider themselves. Horrible horrible place.  People have had nervous break down's working there and they don't care.

Dish Network a hated company?  Not in my book. Going on 3 years after having Comcast for 30 years. I love Dish Network. Each to their own.

UPS definitely should make this list. They are well known for fraudulent charges on their bills. They are one of the most unethical companies I have ever dealt with. They do not care about their employees or customers. It's all about the almighty dollar. They wrapped themselves, along with Obama, in the American flag and ship hundreds of jobs overseas to the Philippines. You call their customer service and they have no idea what is going on or you can't understand what they are saying. When they shipped their clerical jobs overseas, they actually lied to their employees, stating that the billing was done in Georgia. Then they want to say their company culture is they will be honest with their employees. No integrity whatsoever.

I have big love for JC Penney! Its true I kinda miss the sales (which were the same every other week) and miss the monthly coupons (which they conditioned the consumers to wait for)  - but I think they have done a pretty good job marketing to the 30 somethings  - too bad most of their older customers stopped supporting them :-(

JCP is way to small and irrelevant of a company to be America's number one most hated company. You either buy there or you don't. It can't hurt you.  But somebody like Bank of America can really put a hurt on your life.  I think MSN was afraid to screw with them.  Maybe that is where they keep their money?
