 Reason

Working with great people is one of the main reasons I’ve gone back to the same shifts.

Why did you start working for Upshift?

I heard about Upshift in 2021 after speaking and meeting with an Upshifter. We were both working at LoanDepot and they spoke very highly of it. At the time, I had a job but was looking for a new opportunity with more hours and better pay. Upshift seemed like the perfect fit for me and I decided to give it a try.

What do you do outside of Upshift?

I really like to relax when I’m not working which includes going out to eat or reading. I also love to exercise and stay active. Whether it’s taking walks or riding my bike around town, I love to be outdoors and moving around.

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

I would make sure to have a positive attitude and be confident in yourself. Working a shift somewhere new can make you nervous and having the right mindset makes a world of difference. I worked with a new Upshifter at my last shift and you could tell she was a bit nervous at first but as the shift went on she became a lot more confident and really enjoyed it.

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

I’ve worked at a lot of places in Miami including Sanza, FTX, Nova University, University of Miami and many more. It’s really hard to pick my favorite place as I’ve really enjoyed working at all of the locations I’ve been to. If I had to pick a couple of places it would be UM and Nova University. The chef, managers and staff are really professional and create a positive work environment. Working with great people is one of the main reasons I’ve gone back to the same shifts.
