I’m a huge sports fan so getting to work at the games has been a bonus.

Why did you start working for Upshift?

I found Upshift online around September, 2021. We had just moved to Houston and bought a house. We were doing a ton of renovations on it and working with the contractors took up most of my days. I was looking for something flexible that allowed me to work at night around the renovations going on at my house. Upshift was the perfect fit for my unique schedule.

What do you do outside of Upshift?

Obviously, most of my time recently has been spent working on the house but we’re almost done with the renovations. Hopefully that will give me more time for the outdoor activities I love like riding my bike and golfing. The heat in Houston can be pretty intense during the summer which makes those activities harder but I try to get outside as much as possible. 

“Upshift was the perfect fit for my unique schedule.”

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

I recommend applying to and working as many shifts as possible when you join. This helps you to find the ones that you like. At the beginning, I worked any shifts that were available but now I can be selective and choose shifts at the locations that I really like.

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

Most of the shifts I’ve worked have been at different sporting events at BBVA and Toyota Center. I’ve worked as a cashier and food runner. I’ve also worked at the university which was great but the sporting events are so much fun. I’m a huge sports fan so getting to work at the games has been a bonus.
