I like shifts that require you to move around a lot and be really productive!

Why did you start working for Upshift?

I joined Upshift in July, 2019 but didn’t pick up many shifts at that time. When the pandemic started, I wasn’t working as much from my full-time job and wanted to make extra money. There weren’t many jobs that were hiring at the time but Upshift had shifts posted. I was so happy that I had already signed up. I just logged into the app and started picking up shifts that day!

What do you do outside of Upshift?

I no longer have a traditional full-time job and only use apps that allow you to work flexibly. That’s the thing that I love the most about Upshift. I can pick up the shifts that fit my schedule depending on what my week looks like. When I’m not working, you can usually find me reading a book and listening to music. Books and music allow me to relax and keep my mind busy at the same time.

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

I always recommend being very detail-oriented when it comes to your shifts. Make sure that you read through the shift details so that you are able to arrive on time and are ready to work. Make sure to double-check that you clocked in/out correctly after the shift. If you forgot to clock in/out correctly, make sure to let Upshift know so that the proper adjustments can be made. These are some really important things that have helped me!

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

Two of my favorite places to work have been Ballantyne Country Club and QC Catering. I’ve worked quite a few shifts as a dishwasher, housekeeping, and some warehouse shifts for several different businesses. I like shifts that require you to move around a lot and be really productive. It’s almost like I’m getting some exercise while I work!
