Tell us a bit about yourself. 

Hi, my name is Tony. I am a father of 3 and a very hard worker. Outside of Upshift, I work for Amazon full time. Even though I like working at Amazon, I wanted to be able to make some extra money and have flexible hours, which is why I chose to start working for Upshift. It really helps me stretch out my time so I have more time to be with my family.

What has been your experience working on Upshift?

I started working with Upshift about 3 months ago after my wife introduced it to me. It is new to Miami but there are still a lot of shifts available. I really love the flexibility of Upshift. Whenever I have days off from my full time job, I can pick and choose a shift to work through Upshift if I want to. I also really enjoy how you can experience different work environments. I know with LoanDepot, it is very lively and upbeat since it is baseball season. I also enjoy the people there because they are very nice and fun to work with. The number one thing I like about Upshift is the ease of using the app. I have seen what people go through when working through a temp agency. They have to talk over the phone to get jobs where for us Upshifters, the jobs are in the app and you just have to apply for what works for you. At LoanDepot, I always see the lines for clocking in and out being very long. With Upshift, you can just clock in and out through your phone after you have met with the supervisor.

I have a few family members who are working with Upshift as well, like my wife and son. They really enjoy the flexibility as well. It definitely has become a family affair! 

What advice would you give new Upshifters?

The main advice I would give is to think carefully before choosing a shift. You want to make sure to read through the shift details to confirm you can attend the shift and do a good job. You are making a commitment by confirming shifts and the businesses are relying on your help.

Would you recommend Upshift to your friends?

Yes, I definitely would recommend it and have already recommended it a lot. I have even recommended it to people I work with at Amazon and they have started working through Upshift. They also enjoy the flexibility and the ability to make extra money. I have a few family members who are working with Upshift as well, like my wife and son. They really enjoy the flexibility as well. It definitely has become a family affair!

“The main advice I would give is that if you have committed to a job, make sure you can actually show up. You also need to know that you are working with the best team. You really will have so much fun while you also make money. This is the main thing I love about Upshift. It’s not just a job to me; it’s a fun way to get paid!”

Upshifter of the Week: Irena R.

” I really liked the idea of being able to work whenever you have time, especially if you have other things going on like another job or running your own small business. It’s perfect for if you are an artist or student because you can still work on your goals while you also find work on your own time.”

“Upshift was a better opportunity because not only did they have hospitality but manufacturing and retail positions. You weren’t stuck doing the same thing all the time. If you had multiple skill sets then you have a choice from multiple job opportunities which was really great.”
