UPSHIFTER OF THE WEEK (4) (1)

I signed up for Upshift about 2 years ago after a friend told me about it. I retired after 35 years as a food safety specialist and was looking for something where I could work on my own terms. Upshift was perfect for that because it allowed me to choose where and when I wanted to work. The platform really gives you a lot of freedom which you can’t find anywhere else.

Although I started picking up shifts here and there, Upshift allowed me to get a permanent position at CWI gifts after working shifts through them. The platform can lead to more permanent positions if you’re interested. Unlike other companies, you actually get to try out different positions to see whether you like them before being hired on. This allows you to see whether you like working at that company or in that position before making any commitments. Even though I got hired on at CWI, I still work shifts in my free time through Upshift.

Outside of Upshift, my wife and I love music, gardening, fishing and travelling. We have a big garden at our house which even includes some chickens. We love to travel and are big foodies. One of our favorite things about travelling is trying new restaurants and we always make sure to do our research beforehand. We’ve been to a lot of the places featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and Man Vs. Food!

When I meet new Upshifters, I always give them the same advice. I tell them to show up to shifts ready to go and give it 100%. I’ve always been a proponent of working hard no matter what I do and it’s very beneficial on Upshift. The businesses appreciate that kind of attitude and work ethic and will make sure to accept you for future shifts.

Takeya and CWI have been two of my favorite places to work. All the people at those companies are great and make it really enjoyable to work there. Picker shifts are my favorite because they involve a lot of walking. I walk a lot everyday and when I’m doing shifts it’s almost like I’m being paid to exercise.

I highly recommend Upshift to anyone looking for freedom and flexibility. It’s been a great experience so far and can’t wait to pick up more shifts!
