Sigep Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Sigma Phi Epsilon (ΣΦΕ), commonly known as SigEp, is a social college fraternity for male college students in the United States. It was founded on November 1, 1901, at Richmond College (now the University of Richmond), and its national headquarters remains in Richmond, Virginia. It was founded on three principles: Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love (often abbreviated as "VDBL"). Sigma Phi Epsilon is one of the largest social fraternities in the United States in terms of current undergraduate membership.

New Member Educator (Former Employee) says"The national organization does little to devote time or resources to its members, except for when it serves the purpose of pushing their agenda. That being said, the independence and results-oriented mindset that you develop from having to make things happen with little oversight is empowering."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity full-time Cons: This was like working with high school teenage girls. The gossip, intentionally unwilling to help others out of fear they will advance, lack of structure, completely mismanaged. Benefits are terrible, pay mediocre and the cliques are ridiculous."
Current Employee - Assistant Director says"I have been working at Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity full-time Cons: There are really no cons"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity full-time for more than a year Cons: Little room for growth, very cliquish, little appreciation of personal life and commitments. The values they promote to members are not sufficiently reflected in culture."
Director of . . says"I have been working at Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity Cons: For the most part, all positions are occupied by "kids." There is very little management structure at Sigman Phi Epsilon with only the executive director position occupied by someone over 30 years old. You will be receiving advice and counsel from people who have limited real-like work experience. They believe that the "professional development" that you will receive at SigEp will prepare you for working in a Fortune 500 company -- but this is most certainly not the case. As a result, the respect level that you will have for your "superiors" will be limited because there is no backbone to the direction they are giving you -- most notably because they are receiving no/limited direction from the executive director."
S&S Enterprises says"I placed an order on 7/30/2020 and as of 8/9/2020 yet to receive. I've called customer service several times and keep getting transferred between the Florida and Michigan stores. I was told that they requested a drop shipment directly from the supplier but can't reach them to find out where my product is. I was told someone would contact me as soon as they found out what happened, meantime my project is on hold with no answers. I have several classic cars that i am currently working on, and have been dealing with a lot of vendors. By far this is the worst. James S&S Enterprises"
Paul says"Hi, I have purchased plenty of parts for my 68 mustang, first item dash pad is too thick, today I went to fit my billet side mirrors poor quality made in China. I have spent close to $10.000. With NPD , I am very disappointed with these 2 items. Will never purchase anything else from NPD."
