Why did you start working for Upshift? 

I heard about it on the radio when I was driving in the car with my girlfriend. I wasn’t paying attention but she heard the radio spot and thought I should check it out. At the time, I had a full-time job but had some free time which I was looking to fill. I figured the flexibility was perfect because it allowed me to pick up shifts in my free time around my full-time job without interfering with it. It’s been perfect for me!

What do you do outside of work?

I love working out, reading and playing video games. I also like working on my cars. I enjoy making adjustments and modifications to my cars as well as doing general maintenance. I never take my cars into the shop because I can do everything myself which is really fun and challenging.

“If there was ever a platform or opportunity to try new things, Upshift would be the place to do it. You may just find a position that’s perfect for you that you wouldn’t have found without Upshift!”

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

I’ve heard it countless times from other Upshifters that they didn’t have experience working a certain position but decided to give it a try. Once they did, they realized that they were good at it and really enjoyed it. If there was ever a platform or opportunity to try new things, Upshift would be the place to do it. Always keep an open mind and be willing to try new things. You may just find a position that’s perfect for you that you wouldn’t have found without Upshift!

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

My favorite shifts have been at Cameron Mitchell and OSU. I love working the banquet events at Cameron Mitchell and I’ve probably worked more than 30 shifts with them. I’ve also worked at most of the locations around OSU in their kitchens. All the people at OSU and Cameron Mitchell are great which makes the shifts really enjoyable. It also makes you want to go back to work more shifts there!
