Upshifter of the Month


We are proud to announce that our Columbus Upshifter of the Month is Steven N. He’s become a favorite at COSI, the Ohio Expo Center, and the Columbus Zoo. Managers regularly tell us how great he is and even other Upshifters have emailed and spoken to us about how enjoyable it is to work with him.

Tell us a bit about yourself. 

I’ve had a long career in IT and it has allowed me to travel the world, but involves a lot of stress and long hours. I recently decided to switch focus so I could work fewer hours and Upshift has been great since I can decide when I work and when I don’t. I love keeping active by riding my bike and ride up to 100 miles a week. COSI is one of my favorite places to work because it’s a quick bike ride from where I live.

How has it been working on Upshift?

It’s been terrific. I really enjoy working new types of jobs and at different companies to learn new things; it keeps things fresh and interesting. Getting paid weekly has been helpful since my earnings come in steadily and, compared to a lot of other companies, Upshift hires us as W-2 employees. I’ve worked as an independent contractor for similar companies and the additional taxes you have to pay because of that is significant.

What do you like most about Upshift?

The flexibility has been my favorite aspect of Upshift. If I know I have a few bills coming up or need some extra cash, I can add a few more shifts to the current week so I have the money I need the next Friday. There are enough opportunities that I can find a shift that works with my schedule and what I want to do.
