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 certain areas. You can find a list at www.upshift.work/faq. 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.”

Love it

I think it’s amazing! Makes life so much easier being able to choose not only when you work but where you’d like to be. Especially helpful for single parents. no babysitter, Then don’t pick up a shift. where at a temp service or a regular job you’d easily lose it. Only downside is the lack of options. Hopefully someone can change that 🧐 😁

Thank you for the feedback! We are always adding on more shifts so make sure to keep checking back for variety, also please keep in mind that once a shift is full it disappears so many of the best paid or most interesting shifts can disappear fast! :)

Could be better

For the Charlotte, NC area, they need more available jobs. For the last month, I haven’t been able to get any shifts, regardless of how many I apply for. You will be waitlisted about 98% of the time and IF, that’s a big if, you get accepted, you only have 6 hours maximum to confirm the shift, which can be inconvenient if you’re in the middle of working a shift when you receive the notification and are unable to confirm, due to the current job having strict rules on phone usage during the shift. I’ve been dropped a few times due to things like that. I wish that they will change it to either giving a lot more time to confirm or only show available shift only. Another downside is that if your shift ends earlier than expected, due to them cutting you off early, you won’t get paid for the whole shift, which is unfair. Another popular shift agency, though they have their own annoying issues, at least guarantees 100% payout if a certain percentage of the job time was completed. They need to step up on their game if they don’t want to lose business in this area. As a worker, you NEED to have a few other job options other than this because they hardly have anything besides Carowinds and very very few banquet gigs. Just forget about the smokeshop one, everyone agrees that they applied for that one several times (including myself) and never gets accepted.

Hello, yes we do have restrictions on when you can confirm so that the business can accept other available Upshifters. We have to have this in place so that the people who are available can quickly confirm. You are correct that we do not guarantee 100% of the shift amount if you start it but this is very uncommon to do for hourly roles. We guarantee at least half of the shift amount if you start it or are cancelled from a confirmed shift for a non-performance or discilpinary issue less than 24 hours in advancewhich is very different from most businesses that only pay for hours that you actually work.

Great concept but...

Unfortunately there isn’t enough jobs to make a real living. I live in Cleveland, Ohio and there are so many hospitality options out here yet Upshift offers a small fraction. If you’re not into banquet serving or have experience as a cook there will not be many options to choose from. You’re lucky if you get chosen for a shift at all. So many people use the platform yet there is limited work. On a positive note, the shifts that are there have great payouts, you can make up to $15/hr. I love how you are in control of clocking in and out, and that you get complete info about each shift before applying for it. The app is very easy to use. You are able to keep track of shifts you’ve applied to, got accepted for, and completed. You are even able to rate each shift after clocking out. There also opportunities to get hired permanently or become a regular upshifter at a specific location. You get paid every Friday as a w2 worker. All in all the app is great, I just wish there was more to offer.

Hello Vernie, the reason you were seeing fewer shifts in Feb was seasonal. Jan-March are slow for hotels and catering. Currently there are fewer hospitality shifts available due to COVID restrictions on hospitality businesses. We hope to see those lifted in the next year though and a return to normalcy and more shifts!
