Upshift connects workers to shifts and helps businesses to fill their contingent labor needs. We allow you to choose when and where you want to work.
Currently, Upshift is available in only Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. In order to gain access to the application you MUST sign up for an in-person document check at one of our offices where you will receive a username and password.
Upshift offers a variety of work in the light industrial and service sectors at all different times. We find the work, you pick the shifts.
Upshifter of the Month Matt C. had this to say about Upshift: “The work has been what I expected. I’ve done a lot of part time work while at UC moving around but Upshift is the only side hustle I have now because it is so flexible. When I’m accepted for a shift I am reminded a number of times by text and email when to be there and I’ve always been able to get a hold of the Community Manager quickly when there has been an issue I needed to resolve.”

Ratings and Reviews
The ability to work when I want...is just simply amazing. I love Upshift. Tho I wish they could give us the ability to break up those multi-days shifts and pick up the days we can work from it and negotiation for more flexible hours from their partners as well. Other than that, it’s the best app ever.
PRO’s: I love the concept of working when i want to and the flexibility of shifts offered. I get paid on time and get to work in different places if i want. They starting to expand and open to more businesses. I been an employee for upshift for year now and few months.
CON: They fail to answer their business phones so if you have a problem or question, asked to stay later then clock out times etc, you won’t hear from them at all or even hours later. I find myself having to blow up the phone emails or texts to annoy them to finally get something resolved. Some times it be slow with most of their business partners will not post anything so our list will be “picked over” & you won’t get as much hours for those whom plan to use it as regular job. They won’t let you work over 40hrs unless you continue to work only one business for the pay period.
NO to Upshift
Do NOT work for Upshift if you expect to receive tips for bartending or serving. They make no accommodations for you to be tipped out and they even tell employers NOT to share tips with you. This means they are telling employers to KEEP your tips in order to defer the cost of paying you. I worked a shift for them and earned over a hundred dollars in credit card tips while bartending, which I did not get. I literally earned LESS than I would have made if I worked for tips alone. They are building their company on your back and sweat. Just another capitalist corporate machine designed to gain size based off your hard work while they sit back and do nothing for you.
