Why did you start working for Upshift?

I actually found Upshift online when I was looking for a part-time job with flexible hours in the fall of 2021. I had never heard of a concept like this so it seemed too good to be true. I decided to complete the application and go in for my onboarding. I’ve been using the app ever since!

What do you do outside of Upshift?

When I’m not working, I like to relax by watching tv shows and movies. I actually go to a movie theatre every week or two and it’s been something I’ve done for a while. I enjoy watching comedy and horror movies the most. One of the best things I’ve seen recently is Batman. I didn’t expect it to be that good!

“I actually got an offer to be hired on directly by a business that I love working at and that is all because of Upshift!”

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

Make the best impression possible at your shifts. You want to be professional and come ready to do the best job possible. This will help you get accepted for future shifts at that business and potentially get hired on directly by the business.

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

I’ve enjoyed working all of my shifts so far including at NRG, Toyota Center, TSU, and Texas Medical Center. I’ve worked exclusively at hospitality venues and worked a variety of positions including dishwasher, cook, banquet server, and steward. It’s been awesome having the opportunity to work at different locations around the city. Texas Medical Center is where I’ve worked the most shifts and is definitely my favorite place!
