Why did you start working for Upshift?

I started working at Upshift in July after finding out about Upshift online. I was looking for ways to make extra money that had a flexible schedule. Both my children are young so I needed to find something that allowed me to spend as much time with them as possible. Working from home was not an option because it’s really hard to do that with little kids running around the whole day. Upshift allowed me to work flexibly without sacrificing time with my family.

What do you do outside of work?

Right now, I’m only working on Upshift. The majority of my time is spent with my family when I’m not working. Obviously, having two kids under the age of 2 keeps my husband and I really busy. Upshift is perfect for a family with young kids. My husband and I can coordinate our schedules each week and then I just pick up shifts based on that. Upshift has been great for us!

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

I would recommend reading the shift details thoroughly and checking your calendar before applying to and confirming shifts. You want to make sure that you can attend the shift at the correct time/location, in the correct dress code and can perform the shift duties. The app is great because all of this information is contained in the shift details before you apply to or confirm a shift. You know exactly what to expect before you show up to work your shift!

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

I’ve worked the majority of my shifts at the Aloft Charlotte Ballantyne as a housekeeper. I’ve been with them for almost 3 months basically working from Monday to Friday. This has allowed me to take weekends off so I can spend time with my kids. I really enjoy the work and all the great people that I’ve met at Aloft. It’s a huge bonus when you can find a place that you like to work and continue to go back there.
