UPSHIFTER OF THE WEEK (1)

I’m a substitute teacher so I work Monday-Friday during the school year and I’m off during the summer. I teach elementary school, middle school and high school classes. I really enjoy teaching each grade for different reasons and it always keeps things fresh switching between them. A couple of summers ago, I was looking for a job and heard an ad for Upshift on the radio. It talked about choosing when and where you wanted to work which sounded perfect for the summer.

I’ve really enjoyed working at the Jack Thistledown Racino, Metropolitan at the 9 and Hyatt Downtown Cleveland at the Arcade. I was also excited to see that Driftwood Catering started posting again recently because I enjoy working there too. I’ve focused mostly on serving shifts because I enjoy working with people and love the social aspect of it. I’ve met so many great Upshifters during my shifts which makes the shifts even more fun to work.

When I first joined Upshift, I really thought I would only use it that summer. However when the summer ended, I kept seeing great shifts on the app and decided to continue working throughout the school year. Fast forward 2 years and I still enjoy working on the platform as much, if not more, than I did when I first started, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon!

Upshifter of the Week: Luke C.

“I always enjoy talking with other Upshifters during our shifts. It’s a really good community of people who are always willing to help each other out. Upshifters are happy to share their experiences as well as their favorite places to work, which can be really valuable–especially for someone who is new and is just getting a feel for the platform.”
