best companies.

..............i honestly can't think of any companies that have done anything exceptionally well for me.

worst companies:

this is for canadians, but TIM HORTONS. if any of you have the same experience as me, its' a bunch of miserable foreign people who either can't speak the language or can and ****ing hate everything you are, and treat you like it. i hate service there.

student works painting. this is all throughout canada, and it was the most poorly managed company I've ever worked for and ended up having to get legal assistance to get paid for what I worked. total bull****.
#4
best: apple. quick effective service. sent my ipod in, got a new one back in two days.

worst; rogers. they are lying assholes. they suck huge balls.
#5
I just got the RROD on my xbox too, we'll see how that goes

Worst- whatever company we bought our hot tub from. problem after problem after problem. we couldn't even fill the tub until about 2 weeks after it was delivered

best- i guess I've had good service from Musicians friend
Schecter Hellraiser C-1
Fernandes Dragonfly
Peavey Valveking 112

If I could write off your murder, I'd save all of my receipts,

best would be:
Crutchfield. they have always helped me out with my car and home stereo needs.
Musicians Friend I've never had a problem with their service and fast delivery.

Worst is:
AT&T. I absolutely hate this company for their lack of customer service and annoying calls from India to try and get me to bundle my phone services sometimes two times a day and 5 days a week.
Wachovia bank. They lost a deposit of mine and took better than a month to find it and post to my account. During said time I had bounced checks and they wouldn't take responsibility for their mistake and drop the fees.
#12
Worst: Boost Mobile- The phone I had said I could get a refund on the cell phone game I bought (dumb idea, I know...), so I followed the phone's directions, and they didn't work. I called Boost Mobile and dropped the call when I had five bars of service. I sent an email on a Monday. It said to wait fourty-eight hours for a response, I ended up waiting ninety-six, only for them to say that I couldn't get a refund on my game. -.-
It all makes sense
We're capable of beauty

I find that I feel the same about women who play bass as I think of immigrants in America.

I respect them for finding a place in society under a lot of ridicule, but I have an odd paranoia that they are going to steal my job.

Best - Newegg. Great customer support, great prices, fast shipping.

Worst - AT&T. Not that they are horrible, but it bugs me that nobody can figure out why my DSL is retraining 30 times a day.

the best (in the UK anyway) for clothing is EBTM.com

stands for Everything But The Music... they sell loads of band clothing too, and the delivery is amazing! its free posting and its always next day, i've brought a ton of clothes of there and everytime its arrived next day, if i find a shirt or something on a difference site, i check EBTM first to see if they have it

good prices too lol

City Link are probably the worst delivery company I've dealt with. I was in a situation where they were supposed to deliver to me on a friday (having paid for that service) and they failed to deliver. Upon calling them to ask what was happening they explained that they didn't have time to deliver it and they would send it out to be delivered on monday. I reminded them that I had paid for it to be delivered on the friday, and that they should at least send it out on the saturday. They failed to understand my frustration at not getting what I had paid for and said that they couldn't send it out on the saturday because I hadn't paid for weekend delivery. I was less than pleased.
#21
BEST: amazon
WORST: AOL without a doubt THE single worst customer support i have ever come across. our internet wouldnt connect. we phoned them and they said "please e-mail us your problem" oh and thames water
DONT RISK IT, BUY A BASS AMP
#22
Best: Amazon (Just plain awesome)

Worst: Weatherseal (Useless products, take ages to deliver/install it, try to sell you stuff you don't want, worst customer service ever, you tell them what you think of them and tell them to take you off their list of customers, and a week later they call you advertising their windows), City Link (awful company), Jackson (I didn't get my first Jackson for 6 months, and my second for 4 months), GAK (Great stock and good prices, but they don't tell you something's out of stock until after you've paid for it), Topman (Yeah I think I'll get real clothes that aren't 4 sizes smaller than everywhere else and don't fall apart after being worn once).

EDIT: Congratulations Phazer, this is the first thread of yours I've seen that's worth posting in.

My old letting agency was terrible. They couldn't get hold of my landlord everytime I went in about problems, then when I wanted to look at new properties they cancelled the viewings the day I was meant to be having them. They're currently refusing to give me my deposit back.
#25
Best: Orange. Throw everything at you when you start threatening to terminate the contract.

Worst: Natwest. I don't feel like talking about it right now, I may begin to smash walls through if I do.
