Yesterday, we took a look at the recent hiring activity of the top 10 most reputable companies in the US, as listed by last week's Harris Interactive survey. This survey asked more than 30,000 respondents questions about 60 of the most visible companies in the US. The survey results produced a list of the most reputable companies based on 20 different factors, including social responsibility, financial performance, and leadership. Today's post will focus on the bottom 10 companies on that list.

The bottom 10 is heavily weighted with companies from the financial sector, oil industry, and struggling auto manufacturers, and seems to show the lingering effects on reputation from the Wall Street collapse and Gulf oil spill. The combined hiring demand for these is up just 36% from its 4-year low in November 2008, while the hiring demand of the top 10 companies has gained 270% since Feb 2009.
