 Reason

The fact that you may be moved around and asked to do different things during the shifts keeps it from becoming repetitive and boring.

Why did you start working for Upshift?

I found Upshift in May, 2022 when I was searching for work online. I was in a transitional stage trying to figure out what I wanted to do next and wanted to make money during that time. Upshift seemed like a good fit for my situation as it allowed me to explore different types of shifts before committing to anything full time.

What do you do outside of Upshift?

When I’m not working, you’ll usually find me working around the house because I don’t like sitting still for too long. If I do sit down and relax, usually I’ll work on word puzzles, sudokus or watch my favorite tv shows. I really like NCIS Los Angeles and different reality game shows like Survivor.

Do you have any advice for new Upshifters? 

I recommend looking for shifts that either interest you or that you have experience with. I had never worked on an app like this so working a few shifts I was familiar with really gave me a lot of confidence when I started. The other thing people should remember is that you can pick up shifts around your schedule which gives you the visibility to plan out when you want to work and when you need to be off. I like to plan my shifts out in advance so I’m not rushing to make any changes at the last minute.

What have been your favorite shifts so far?

I’ve really enjoyed working at Comprehensive Logistics Florence and RPI Graphic Data Solutions. The shifts at RPI are really fun because you could be asked to complete a variety of different tasks. This isn’t just an assembly line position where you do the same thing over and over again. The fact that you may be moved around and asked to do different things during the shifts keeps it from becoming repetitive and boring.
