Why did you start working for Upshift?

I heard about it from my daughter from Ohio who was visiting me in Florida. When she arrived, she mentioned checking what shifts were available on Upshift during her trip to Miami. I told her that it sounded cool but we didn’t have that down here. That’s when she showed me her app with all the shifts in my area. I was so excited and signed up for Upshift that day!

What do you do outside of Upshift?

I’m actually retired after working at the postal service for 31 years. I was tired of sitting at home and wanted to get and do something. Upshift sounded perfect for me because it allowed me to be around people while also making some extra money. When I’m not working on Upshift, I’m usually doing things around the house, doing missionary work, and have a little antique business.

“Upshift allows you to work when and where you want to work which puts the control totally in your hands.”

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

Upshift allows you to work when and where you want to work which puts the control totally in your hands. You need to make sure that you have a good work ethic, show up on time and have the right attitude. Following these things will set you up for success on all your shifts.

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

I started by working at Nova Southeastern University and really enjoyed it from Day 1. I work in the cafe area serving sandwiches, making coffee, and other things for the students. There are so many reasons I like it there. It’s a really nice atmosphere, the students are great, the managers are top-notch and it’s a beautiful campus.
