Investors and analysts tend to rate retail industry CEOs with a completely different set of criteria than retail employees would use to rate their boss's-boss's-boss's boss. So if you asked the employees of the largest U.S. retail industry chains if they approved of their CEO, what would they say? Would the collective opinion of current and former employees be different than the collective opinion of retail industry analysts and investors?

Employees have the opportunity to rate, rank, and express their opinions about current and former employers on Glassdoor.com, a career community website dedicated to providing an inside look at what it's really like to work for the largest American companies.

The ratings on Glassdoor.com are ongoing and change with each review, but as of the publish date of this article, these are the employee approval ratings of the largest CEOs at the helm of the largest retail chains in the U.S.:
