Wow, what a biased list. Where's Best Buy, Dell, AT&T? Without these companies listed, it makes me suspicious that someone's deliberately leaving them off the list.

Several people post that they hate Wal-Mart.  Well, they are the only two not in the parking lot at my local Wal-Mart.  I went to J.C. Penney's for some baby clothes and parked in the first spot.  The clothes they had were disorganized and overpriced.  I went to Wal-Mart and had to park in an overflow lot, finally got to the baby clothes.  A smiling worker was hanging new clothes on the rack and I picked through brand new styles that were in perfect order by size.  The prices were less than half of the J.C. Penney clothes, and were of equal quality.

 

If you hate Wal-Mart, it's probably because you don't have one close to you, or you're just ignorantly biased.  Get over your elitist mentality!!

Seems counter intuitive that successful retail companies end up on the hated list. Inversely, do we love failing companies? Why do we not hate BP for what it did to our environment? Why do we not hate the investment banks for what they did to our economy? Why do we not hate hedge funds for extracting wealth from production and putting it into dead capital pools? Why do we not hate Bain Capital and the like? I don't quite understand.

How about  B of  A  . This one eclipse  this list.  But you have to admit  making million to billion using deposited money from customers and then turn around and charge fee's to the customers at the same time invest your money for even more profit  is a Beautiful  thing!  all in the name of "Customer Service"

WHERE IS SEARS IN ALL OF THIS THEY CEARTINTLY DESERVE TO BE IN THIS CROWD..

 I BOUGHT AN AIR COMPRESSOR FROM SEARS IN 2007 AND THEN RECIEVED A LETTER FROM SEARS IN 2012 INFORMING ME THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE SHIELD THAT COVERS THE MOTOR , AND THE COMPRESSOR CAN OVERHEAT AND CAUSE A FIRE. I CALLED THE CUSTOMER SUPPORT # THEY GAVE ME AND TALKED TO A YOUNG LADY WHO ASSURED ME I WOULD RECIEVE A REPLACEMENT PART THAT WOULD FIX THE OVERHEATING PROBLEM. THAT WAS IN NOVEMBER 2012 SHE SAID I WOULD RECIEVE THE PART BY DEC. 14 I AM STILL WAITING AND REALLY DON'T EXPECT TO HEAR FROM THEM ANYMORE. SOMEWHERE THEY HAVE LOST THE CONCEPT OF HAVING A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS DEPENDS ON TAKING CARE OF YOUR CUSTOMERS. WAKE UP SEARS BUT I REALLY THINK IT IS TO LATE.

The national media should take the top slots. Little more than glib, hyped up, divisive, partisan gibberish and half-truths from all of'em.
