Upshifters of the Month


We are proud to announce that our Cbus Upshifter of the Month for May is Karen B, a former Ohio State employee and current banquet server. Read below to learn more about Karen and her experience with Upshift!

Tell us a bit about yourself. 

 I worked at Ohio State for over 20 years. I’m semi retired now, and prefer keeping a more open and flexible schedule. Upshift has been great, especially since I can work on my own time, and earn some supplemental income.

How has it been working on Upshift?

Working for Upshift has been great! It’s nice being able to choose when and where to work. Having the ability to work at businesses multiple times has also allowed to me get to know managers, and build great relationships there. One thing that really surprised me though was how much fun I have working shifts later at night!

What do you like most about Upshift?

I used to always be on Facebook. I was amazed when I found myself replacing that with Upshift! The flexibility and ability to pick up different jobs based on my own schedule is great!
