Why did you start working for Upshift?

I found Upshift online in December, 2021. It sounded really familiar because one of my friends had signed up and was working shifts. I had a full-time job but wanted to make some extra money with the holidays coming up. I was able to pick up shifts after work or on the weekends which set me up perfectly for the holiday season.

What do you do outside of Upshift?

Obviously, it’s starting to get colder now so I’ll be spending more time indoors with family and reading. When the weather is nice, I’m always looking for a new park where I can go for a hike. I lived in Spain years ago and got into Latin dancing. I’ve recently gotten back into it and have been taking Salsa lessons.

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

I would recommend reading through the shift details to make sure you have the required experience for each shift. This is an important step to make sure you put yourself in a position to succeed. I also think being vocal if you have any questions or need help is really important. There are team members willing to help but you need to make sure to ask.

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

I’ve enjoyed working at so many locations during my time on Upshift. I really liked working at Emory, Inspired Living, Illuminarium and Capital City to name a few. When I’m searching for shifts, I look at the location, schedule and pay rate but the biggest thing that sets locations apart is the staff. The staff at these locations were so welcoming, positive and friendly that I just wanted to keep going back.
