Why did you start working for Upshift?

I saw an ad on Facebook in March of this year and decided to apply. The opportunity to work flexibly around my schedule really appealed to me. I was looking for something where I could work consistently but also control when I worked. I thought it sounded too good to be true but once I took my first shift I realized it was just as awesome as it sounded!

What do you do outside of work?

I love to skate and snowboard. I started off skating when I was a kid in California. We didn’t have winters there so I wasn’t able to snowboard growing up in California. Once I moved to Cincinnati, I went full force into snowboarding. I already had the basics from skating so it was an easy transition for me. Now, I spend as much time as I can in the mountains!

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

You definitely want to make a good impression on your shifts. You want to show your passion and work ethic whenever you show up to a shift. The businesses really appreciate it and it sets you up for success. If you do that, the managers will want you to come back in the future. I was able to do that during my shifts and it’s allowed me to find consistent shifts at places that I love working at.

What has been your favorite company to work with?

I’ve really enjoyed working all my shifts so far but I’ve definitely enjoyed working at Holiday Inn Erlanger the most. I’ve worked there a ton since I joined Upshift and have learned a lot during my shifts. It’s a great place to work and I’ve gotten to know everyone there. It’s allowed me to work the hours that fit my schedule and it’s in the perfect location for me. Although I like working at the same businesses, I do like that Upshift offers a variety of shifts which allows me to try new things and learn new skills.
