Why did you start working for Upshift?

I heard about Upshift on Facebook in October, 2021. I was looking for something where I could make extra money that also offered a flexible schedule. Having a flexible schedule was really important to me because it allows me to spend time with my grandchildren and travel to visit my mom. Upshift was exactly what I was looking for!

What do you do outside of Upshift?

When I’m not working on Upshift, I love spending time with my grandchildren who keep me really busy. Two of my hobbies would be photography and scrapbooking. I also love to travel which is really easy to do if you work on Upshift. If I need to take some time off for a trip, I can choose not to apply for shifts on those days and start picking up shifts right when I get back. I recently went to California to visit family and had a great time 

“There are so many opportunities on Upshift if you’re ready to make the most of it!”

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

I always recommend reading through the shift details before you apply for shifts and make sure to arrive to the shifts with a good attitude. We’re always welcomed with open arms at these shifts so you need to make sure that you go in with the right mindset and prepared for the shift. There are so many opportunities on Upshift if you’re ready to make the most of it!

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

I’ve really enjoyed working at both Kimball Midwest and Ascena. Ascena is a really cool facility that has a gym and a cafeteria that serves hot food. The people at Ascena were really great right from my first day. Kimball is in a really convenient location for me and all the people there treat you like family when you come in. I always get really excited when I see shifts posted at Kimball.
