Why did you start working for Upshift?

I have a full-time job and was looking for a part time job to supplement my income. I had recently moved to Dallas from Memphis and we didn’t have anything like Upshift there. There were certain dates and times that I couldn’t work so I needed the flexibility to make my own schedule. Upshift allowed me to work as much or little as I wanted each week around my full-time job and personal commitments.

What do you do outside of Upshift?

When I’m not working, I love to travel. My favorite way to travel is on cruises. You can visit a few different places on each trip and there are so many different activities that you can do on the ships. Recently, my son and I took a Bahamas cruise from Miami and that was a blast. Being able to get on a cruise to a warm part of the world is a great way to escape the cold Winter weather.

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

I think it’s really important to plan ahead and prepare for each shift. I only apply to shifts if I know that I can attend. If I’m not sure that I’ll be able to make it for the date and start time of the shift, I just apply for something else. This is why the shift details provided are so important. Preparation is a key part of being successful and that starts before you arrive for the shift.

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

My favorite places to work have been at the Rosewood Mansion and the Omni Downtown Dallas. Their shift details are very thorough which has allowed me to prepare for the shift prior to arriving. Both locations are well run and extremely organized which helps you succeed especially during your first few shifts there.
