Additional findings include:

  • Grocery chains, fast food chains and retailers are the top three industries, earning an average rating of “good.” 

  • At the other end of the spectrum, 76 companies (37% of the total) earn “poor” or “very poor” ratings.

  • At the bottom of the ratings, TV service providers, Internet service providers and health plans earn an average rating of “poor.”

  • Seven companies have double-digit leads over their industry average: Kaiser Permanente (health plans), Sam’s Club (retailers), USAA (credit cards), TracFone (wireless carriers), SouthwestAirlines (airlines), PNC (banks) and Alamo (car rental services).
