Rodney R.


Tell us a bit about yourself. 

I’m from Cincinnati and just recently graduated from Xavier University with my Master’s Degree in Secondary Education. I completed my Bachelor’s in Economics from New York University and first started out working in the banking and insurance industry. Currently, I am working as a substitute school teacher for Cincinnati Public Schools. My ultimate goal is to continue working in education either through teaching, recreation and athletics, or in an organization doing training and development.

How has it been working on Upshift?

It’s been a great experience for me so far. I came across Upshift after graduating when I was looking for extra work. I had more free time in my schedule since I was no longer studying, so I decided to give it a try. I found that some of the shifts were things that I already had training and experience with, such as order picking and serving. I figured that I could do that rather well, so I applied and went from there. Most of my work through Upshift has been as a fulfillment specialist through Aero Fulfillment. It’s been especially helpful being able to pick up more shifts this summer, but now that school has started again, I’ll be looking for shifts I can do after school hours or on the weekends.

What do you like most about Upshift?

I really like the people I get to work with and the team at Upshift. I always feel comfortable going to my community manager with any questions I have about a certain shift. Also, the platform is very convenient. I like all the reminders that come across to keep you updated on what’s going on with your shift, along with how informative the app’s shift details page is so that you know exactly what to expect before applying.
