Halliburton Voted ‘Worst Company in America’ by Consumerist Readers

It’s official. Out of 16 contestants you submitted, you voted Halliburton the Worst Company in America.

We first asked for your submissions on February 17th. We posted the ladder on Feb. 22. Then we had rounds 1, 2, 3, 4 , 5, 6, 7, 8, tier 1 results, rounds 9, 10, 11, 12, tier 2 results, rounds 13 & 14, and finally, the tier 4 deathmatch.

In the process, the contests got us in the New York Times and on Marketplace.

Thanks to participants Monsanto, US Postal Service, H&R Block, Sprint PCS, Verizon, Walmart, Target, Southwest, Jetblu, ChoicePoint, Sallie Mae, SonyBMG, Google, Enron and the US Government. Better luck next time.

All of the entrants were chosen and voted upon by you, o mighty readers. Thanks for playing along for over month, it was fun and we learned a lot. We’ll do it even better next time. And we still have the best company in America to do…

    The folks over at Gawker are making fun of us, so I propose Gawker Media for the next WCiA poll.

  2. Next: Best company bracket! Best company bracket!

    (Sorry, I’m hooked.)

    Gosh, I think we should vote Halliburton the BEST company in America, too! That would get The Consumerist some press!
