Tell us a bit about yourself. 

I’ve been a hard worker my whole life. I started working when I was 14 and haven’t stopped since. I love to stay busy and contribute. I’m all about helping others and am always there for co-workers, family, and friends. I’ve always been someone who provided for others when they needed it. My main driver now is my eight year old son Davion. When he wins, I win and, I’m doing everything possible to set him up for success in life.

How has it been working on Upshift?

It’s been great for me, I love the options and flexibility. I never get told where to go or what to do because Upshift allows me to make those choices. I’m also a big fan of the people I work with. I’m a huge proponent of teamwork and whenever I’m working with Upshifters I can feel it. We are always working towards a common goal and everyone is helping each other. Almost everyone I’ve worked with has been competent and easy to get along with which is not something I can say about every company I’ve worked for.

What do you like most about Upshift?

The thing I like best is that it gives people a chance to prove themselves and then use what they’ve done to advance their lives. As long as you pass the personality test then you can become an Upshifter regardless of your name, race, or how you speak. There’s no person reviewing resumes who can make subjective decisions. Once you are on Upshift it’s all on you. If you break the rules you are done but as long as you do a great job you can keep getting better positions. It’s based on what you’ve done-not how well you can write a resume.

Tell us a bit about yourself. 

I come from a family that is all about hard work and self-reliance. We’re all in the service industry, I’ve worked at catering events, bars, restaurants and as a brand ambassador my whole life. My son and daughter are both bartenders as well.

How has it been working on Upshift?

I  love that there is always a variety of shifts available. I can work one day at the Holiday Inn, another at the Convention Center and the next at a warehouse.

 I like switching up what I am doing and keeping it fresh!  I really like that I get to choose if I will work and then what I will do. It’s also been great meeting people through Upshift. I’ve made a lot of friends working shifts have even begun carpooling with some other Upshifters.

What do you like most about Upshift?

For me it’s all these cool events and venues I’ve worked at coupled with all the Upshifters that I have become friends with.  From Great Wolf Lodge, Savannah Center and Miami Valley Gaming to all the other great venues I’ve discovered recently at Chef’s Choice and Elegant Fare. I’m always discovering beautiful places and it’s awesome to be there when they’re filled with the energy of a great event.
