Default The Worst companies to work for

From Low Pay to High Stress: These Are the Absolute Worst Companies to Work for in America, According to Employees

Lauren Hamer Twitter MORE ARTICLES

1. Kroger

The average employee satisfaction rating on Glassdoor is a 3.3. Unfortunately, Kroger just misses the mark with a less-than-stellar 3.2 employee rating. Thereís even an entire online forum dedicated to why working at Kroger sucks. On the plus side, about half of current and former employees would recommend their job to a friend, despite reports suggesting that the grocery chain pays its workers low wages.

If you prefer to make ends meet in your next job, look beyond Kroger. Most hourly worker pay hovers just above the national minimum wage.

2. Hertz

Scroll through Hertz employee reviews on Glassdoor and youíll read things like ďlow payĒ, ďinconsistent hoursĒ, and ďmanagement disconnect.Ē Only about a third of employees would recommend their jobs to a friend in need and the companyís overall rating is a dismal 2.6. Thatís a shame for one of the biggest players in the rental car business. Hertz also owns Dollar and Thrifty brands ó none of whom have favorable employee ratings either.

3. Kraft Heinz

A brutally honest report from The Chicago Tribune described what itís really like to work at Kraft Heinz. Backed by Berkshire Hathaway, the company doesnít discount its polarizing work culture since itís their key to superior performance. Only the most competitive, ambitious, and cut-throat employees survive. So, one can assume work-life balance is non-existent, and only those who perform receive reputable pay.

4. McDonalds

McDonalds continues to be the highest-grossing restaurant chain in America, yet it canít afford to pay its employees much more than minimum wage or provide them with adequate benefits. Crowdsource website Ranker lists Micky Dís as the second worst retailer to work for. Shocker.

5. Tyson Foods

Horrific working conditions land Tyson Foods a prime spot on our worst companies to work for list. A 2016 report shed an unflattering light on the dangerous work environment, noting that some employees wore adult diapers because they were denied bathroom breaks. Others left with work-related knife injuries due to such close quarters on the assembly line. Need we say more?

6. Walgreens

American consumers have a love-hate relationship with drugstore chains and their pricey prescriptions, but it seems employees do as well. Disgruntled Walgreens employees site poor pay (cashiers are paid just $9 per hour) and other labor issues as major negatives. The Center for Popular Democracy tallied actual employee votes and named Walgreens the worst company in America. Theyíve even been accused of promoting employees to salary positions to skirt overtime pay, resulting in employees earning less money per hour than their hourly counterparts.

7. Walmart

Underpaid Walgreens employees have nothing on Walmart employees. This company is the worst when it comes to employee compensation, according to the National Employment Law Project. They found Walmart pays worse than even Pizza Hut, as cashiers earn an average of only $9.36 per hour and sales associates earn about $9.41 per hour. The national median is $17.81.

8. TJX Companies

Despite seeing a surge in profits óa miracle in itself considering the current retail landscape ó TJX Companies still only manages to pay their employees some of the lowest wages in America. Itís unlikely thin paychecks provide enough worker incentive to combat the never-ending check-out lines typical of the discount retail chain.

9. Kmart

Itís been a long, uphill battle for Kmart, and it seems employees are taking the brunt of the beating. The employees who still have their jobs amidst widespread store closures are forced to endure poor employee compensation since the chain hasnít had a profitable quarter in years. Kmart makes Rankerís top five list of worst retailers to work for. Employees have little to say about their work culture on Glassdoor. Kmart is burdened with a 2.7 rating overall. ďWork here if desperateĒ one review says.

10. Fresh Market

When your stores are facing stiff competition from grocery giants like Whole Foods, youíd think upper management would do everything they can to satisfy and retain employees. Unfortunately, the opposite is true. The Fresh Market boasts one of the lowest ratings on Glassdoor, only 2.4, and just 27% of employees would recommend their jobs to others. They say work culture is toxic at the market, but new head honcho, Scott Duggan, has vowed to make it better. Weíll see if it works.

11. Forever 21

The reasons behind Forever 21ís cheap clothing is shocking. For one, a class-action lawsuit was filed against the retailer for failing to pay in-store hourly workers their wages, especially high-school students who donít know better. Others cite sweatshop-like conditions in American factories while outsourcing other, lesser-quality manufacturing needs for cheap. And thatís to say nothing of the 50 plus copyright allegations filed against the brand for selling designer knock-offs.

12. Family Dollar

Like Walgreens, Family Dollar has already been accused of overworking its salaried managers to avoid overtime pay. Underpaid and overworked employees in Pennsylvania actually sued the company for forcing overtime work up to 60 hours without pay, causing many to sleep in the stores overnight. A shocking 26% of employees would recommend their job thanks to a demanding rotating schedule that makes it hard to enjoy life outside of work.

13. Dillardís

Dillardís is one of the largest fashion retailers in the country. Yet, employers donít believe their pay is equal to manager expectations. Glassdoor reviews commonly mention unrealistic sales quotas and little work-life balance at this company. Those looking for an enjoyable retail experience, whether on the sales floor or in management, may want to consider applying elsewhere.

14. Dish

Cable and other telecommunications companies rarely score brownie points for customer satisfaction. Just look at Comcast. But it seems some cable companies like Dish fail their employees, too. Field agents despise their working conditions because installing a big dish on a slanting roof is never enjoyable for anyone. And customer relations employees have the distinct pleasure of listening to angry customers vent about their service all day.

15. Sears

Like itís Kmart cohort, Sears does a poor job of attracting employees. It has struggled to make a profit recently and has closed hundreds of stores as a result. Job insecurity alone can damage even the best worker reputation, but horrific working environments and dubious ethical practices will really drive it home.

Yeah, they probably have the worst reputation from customers for sure.

Wow. Three companies from Arkansas made the list. Not bad. Thatís 20% of the worst companies in a state with less than 1% of the population.

Besides Wal Mart what are the companies?

That is interesting for sure. Arkansas also was #2 on the lists of worst wages.

My bet is their population employed in the great state is not proportionate. Hell hq is probably the only good place to work at in the entirety of the walmarts.
