It’s The Customer Service Hall of Shame

It’s called the Customer Service Hall of Shame, and Comcast takes the number one spot on this notorious list — for the third year in a row. And when it comes to excellent customer service, Amazon leads the list on the Customer Service Hall of Fame. That’s the word from 24/7 Wall St., which collaborated with the research survey group Zogby Analytics, to find out the best and worst in customer service among U.S. companies. More than 1,500 adults were surveyed about the quality of customer service at 151 of America’s best-known companies in 17 industries. Each respondent rated each company’s customer service as excellent, good, fair or poor.
