(June 23, 2014) – There are great companies to work for and then there are those that…aren’t so wonderful.

For the third year, business website 24/7 Wall Street came up with a list of the 11 worst companies to work for. The website analyzed thousands of reviews from Glassdoor.com and identified the 11 businesses that ranked the lowest. Companies had to have a minimum of 300 reviews to be considered for the list.

Many of the companies were in the retail sector, with workers taking issue with wages and the number of hours worked. In some cases, they were concerned about the difficulty of hitting sales goals and making commission. Shrinking revenue and lagging sales contributed to low ranking for several of the companies.

Workers also took issue with pushy sales tactics and rotating prices that made it hard for them to sell to customers. They also generally disapproved of middle management and their CEOs received low approval ratings.

Here’s the list, in descending order:

11. Radio Shack
10. Children’s Place
9. Family Dollar
8. hh gregg
7. ADT
6. Dillard’s
5. Brookdale Senior Living
4. Jos. A. Bank Clothiers
3. Frontier Communications
2. Express Scripts
1. Books-A-Million
