I love how flexible the shifts are and all the people there have treated me really well!

Why did you start working for Upshift?

Upshift was recommended to me by my best friend who had already been using the app for about two years. I was changing jobs and was looking for something where I could make some extra money during the transition process. My best friend really loved using Upshit and so I signed up in September, 2021. I planned on using it temporarily but have been doing it consistently ever since.

What do you do outside of Upshift?

I used to be an early childhood education teacher but now I only work on Upshift. When I’m not working, I like to spend time with family, work out and travel. I haven’t been traveling as much recently but am hoping to start traveling again soon. My favorite place that I’ve been to recently is the Bahamas. I recommend that everyone try and get to the Bahamas because it is an amazing place. The flexibility that Upshift provides you is perfect for someone who loves to travel in their free time.

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

I would suggest that everyone try something new and outside of their comfort zone. I had some experience with certain positions posted on the app but not all of them. I had never really done banquet serving but had some other hospitality experience. I was able to learn a lot from the businesses that I first worked with and now banquet serving are some of my favorite shifts that I’ve worked on Upshift.

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

I’ve worked both hospitality and light industrial type shifts. I’ve had great experiences at all the places I’ve worked through Upshift but Shipping Tree is definitely one of my favorites. I love how flexible the shifts are and all the people there have treated me really well. Working with great people during a shift can make a huge difference to how successful you are and makes the shifts a lot more enjoyable.
