TRG Customer Solutions, a call center operator, dropped 41 spots, from 34th to 75th.
Other big declines: Sears, from 67th to 90th; Manpower of WV, from 64th to 80th; Snowshoe Mountain, from 71st to 87th; and Racing Corp. of West Virginia, from 77th to 93rd.
Overall, WorkForce said nearly half on the top 100 list climbed in rank this year while just over one-third descended. The ranking of 12 employers was unchanged.
Seven employers that weren't on last year's list made it this year: Price Gregory International Inc. debuted at No. 58, AMZN WVCS (Amazon.com) at No. 85, Professional Payroll Concepts Inc. at 87, David Memorial Hospital at 89, Prima Marketing at 92, Home Depot at 95 and Cliffs Logan Coal Co. at 100.
WorkForce prepares the annual list using Quarterly Contribution Report data filed by companies in March. The agency does not provide employment figures for individual companies because of privacy concerns.
The agency did say that this year's 10 largest employers had a total of 1,818 more employees than last year's top 10.
Lists for each year since 1999 are posted online at www.workforcewv.org/lmi/OTHRDATA.cfm.
