Upshifters of the Month

We are proud to announce that our Upshifters of the Month for July are Adam J. and Aubrey F. Both have received rave reviews from all the Upshift clients for which they have worked and have made Upshift their full time gig. They’ve both worked a number of shifts in both the service industry and light industrial facilities. Adam has now settled into an Upshift to Hire position at Completeset and Aubrey recently started working full time at Topicz after working an Upshift to Hire shift there!

Tell us a bit about yourself. 

I live in downtown Cincinnati and got involved in the startup community after about 15 years working in the corporate world.

How has it been working on Upshift?

I’ve had great fun working with UpShift. A lot of the roles are things I had never done previously, so it was very fun to try new things.

What do you like most about Upshift?

Total control over your own schedule and work life is an amazing thing. But I also felt confident that if I worked hard and applied myself, that I would be able to make myself some great opportunities in terms of career and life happiness. That’s pretty much come true and all the great experiences I’ve had wouldn’t have happened without Upshift.

Tell us a bit about yourself. 

I have four brothers and sisters and I lived with them, my parents, and grandmother. My grandmother was my biggest influence and she taught me the value of hard work and frugality. She encouraged me to get my first job at 18 and begin an education and advance my career. I grew up in Price Hill and then moved to Mount Healthy when I got to high school. Moving out there gave me my biggest goal-to own my own house one day.

How has it been working on Upshift?

It’s been great for me. I worked for a local restaurant for four years and it didn’t seem like there was room for advancement or even a full time position. Upshift gave me the opportunity to take shifts in a few different industries and choose when I wanted to work. This allowed me to find my first ever full time job-as a Stocker at Topicz!

What do you like most about Upshift?

I get to meet a lot of new people when I work different shifts and get to know people everywhere to go. I loved working at the Duke Convention Center and meeting the mayor on one shift and it’s great to make friends and see familiar faces around town.
