Likeability isn’t necessarily a requirement for success as a CEO (see George Pullman), but it certainly can’t hurt to have your employees behind you.

Likeability isn’t necessarily a requirement for success as a CEO (see George Pullman), but it certainly can’t hurt to have your employees behind you.

To find out which chief executives are naughty or nice, Owler, which compiles crowdsourced info on companies and their managers, analyzed over 250,000 CEO reviews from its platform (comprised of employees, competitors and other users) to come up with a Top 100 ranking, based on a likeability scale of 0-100.

The most liked CEO across all industries? Costco’s Craig Jelinek, who, in the tradition of his predecessor Jim Sinegal, regularly visits stores and provides the best wages in mass merchant retail.

Sharing the spotlight on Owler’s Top 41 retail and e-commerce list are, among tech and appliance merchants:

No. 5: Kevin Mansell, Kohl’s

No. 12: Jeff Bezos, Amazon

No. 23: Hubert Joly, Best Buy

No 24: Daniel Yong Zhang, Alibaba

No. 25: Devin Wenig, eBay

No. 27: Marc Lore, Jet.com

No. 30: Brian Cornell, Target

No. 33: Marvin Ellison, JCPenney

No. 34: Robert Niblock, Lowe’s

No. 35: Shira Goodman, Staples

No. 36: Craig Menear, Home Depot

No. 37: Doug McMillon, Walmart

No. 38: Roland Smith, Office Depot

No. 39: Alasdair James, Kmart

No. 40: John Furner, Sam’s Club

And edging out Furner for last place is (drumroll, please... ) Sears’s own, Eddie Lampert.
