Tell us a bit about yourself. 

I’m from Cincinnati and I’m also a recent UC graduate. I have a lot of background working in the service industry, which has included everything from food and hospitality to administrative positions. I originally heard about Upshift from someone who was working on the platform and decided to sign up a few months ago to add to my current income and build my skill set. I was already working full-time when I joined Upshift, but this past month I’ve been in the process of transitioning to a new job so I’ve been relying on Upshift a lot more because of that. It’s been really helpful in times like this because it’s something that’s always there whenever I need it. It’s like a part-time job that I can turn into a full-time job whenever I want.

How has it been working on Upshift?

My experience on Upshift has been great. I love being able to meet new people and do a variety of different things on the platform. I’m a spontaneous person and I like not having to stick to the same routine everyday. Upshift gives me the freedom to choose when and where I work, which I’ve never had the ability to do with any other job. I’ve already worked at a number of businesses through Upshift including Miami Valley Gaming, Great Wolf Lodge, the Marriott, and All Occasions Event Rental. I’ve worked shifts mostly in banquet serving and special events, however I’ve also done some general labor, warehouse, and laundry shifts as well. No matter what type of shift I’m working–whether it’s doing physical labor or interacting with guests, I definitely feel like there’s something really rewarding about it. In addition to this, the managers I’ve worked with at each business have been so friendly and welcoming. They always make you feel like your work is appreciated regardless of whether you’ve been working with them for awhile or if it’s your very first shift.

What do you like most about Upshift?

The thing I like most about Upshift is that it’s always something different. There’s so much variety in the different types of shifts available, the locations you go to, and the people you get to meet. I enjoy being able to diversify my shifts and not just stay in one industry. Something else I like is that everything is so simple and convenient since it’s all handled directly through Upshift. The weekly pay is also really nice. Overall, working on Upshift has been a great experience for me. I’ve enjoyed meeting so many new people and getting the opportunity to make my own schedule as I go.
