Upshifter of the Week: Michael P!


We are proud to announce that our Columbus Upshifter of the Week is Michael P. Michael is retired but enjoys keeping busy by working with Upshift. He has worked over 1,350 hours at a variety of locations!

Tell us a bit about yourself. 

I am a retired IT guy who enjoys watching game shows, cooking, hiking, and traveling. I have traveled to many places. Some of my favorites are Greece, Italy, Rome, Barcelona, and Alaska. I also love reading Stephen King novels. My favorite is definitely The Stand. 

How has it been working on Upshift?

My whole experience with Upshift has been very positive. I heard an ad about it a year ago and I thought what a great idea and I jumped right on board. I am used to working in an office so it is nice being able to try new things. I enjoy working at Takeya USA, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Stella & Dot

What do you like most about Upshift?

I like the flexibility of Upshift. Being able to choose when you work and where you work is a huge benefit of Upshift. It allows you to try a placement for a day or two without getting locked in long term, this way you can see if it is a good fit for you. The app is so easy to use and all the companies have been very enjoyable places to work!
