Why did you sign up for Upshift? 

I was looking for work after I had left my last position and  I stumbled across Upshift in my search. I saw that it was a simple and convenient way to be able to find work. I have been working with Upshift pretty consistently for about two and a half months so far. It has been really enjoyable!

What has been your experience working with Upshift?

It has been extremely positive so far. The app is very simple to use and it’s awesome to pick shifts on days and times that work for me, that way there are never any scheduling issues since I am creating my own schedule. It’s just really convenient and that is probably the main thing that I love about Upshift. The app also reminds me of when I have a shift coming up and when I have to clock in/out. As far as the people and businesses I have worked with, everyone has been great and easy to work with. It has all gone very smoothly so everything has been extremely positive.

What are your favorite companies you have worked for? 

I really enjoy working at the aquarium because the environment is really nice and the people are great to work with. I also like working at JW Marriott because the Chefs are really fun people. Working at the Marriott was actually the first time I experienced working in the kitchen. Recently, I’ve been working at the BBVA soccer stadium during the games which has been really cool because of how energetic and lively it is.  

Make sure to have a positive attitude and approach the work with a mindset of “I’m going to do the best I can”.

What do you do outside of working with Upshift? 

Right now I’m not doing any work outside of Upshift. In the past, I was a branch manager that oversaw the sales department for Ready Refresh which is a water delivery service in Houston and Tampa. I like watching, playing, and reading about sports. My favorite sports to play are tennis and basketball, but I watch all sports. I also like going to the gym and reading historical books or fiction.

Would you recommend Upshift to your friends and family? 

For sure! Anyone who is looking for work or looking for supplemental income, I would definitely recommend it and have multiple times!

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

Make sure to have a positive attitude and approach the work with a mindset of “I’m going to do the best I can”. The Upshifters and staff at each business are great to work with and make the shifts fun.
