After realizing the stress of being in charge was no longer what she wanted, Monique Ross decided to look into a different employment opportunity she kept hearing about: Shiftgig.
Her previous employer used Shiftgig to help fill its staffing needs, which piqued her interest in picking up gig work. Monique decided the opportunity to earn money as a Shiftgig Specialist was just the push she needed to take a step back from the stress of her full-time job.
“I like that with Shiftgig we have choices. I can say yes or I can say no. If I have something going on, I don’t have to pick up work that day,” Monique said. With Shiftgig, she has been able to refine her current skills, gain new expertise and meet new people — all on her own time.
Not only has she been able to build relationships with other Specialists but she’s become a familiar face with Shiftgig customers as well. In fact, one of the big reasons she continues to pick up gig work with Shiftgig is because even though the work is temporary, she feels like a part of the team.
When asked to give advice to other Specialists, Monique recommended arriving ready to help, communicating clearly and being responsible for your work. She feels this is the best way to build trust when doing gig work. “You are there to solve a person’s problem. You are their solution. Be their solution,” Monique said.
When Monique is not working she enjoys spending time with her family by going to the pool, watching movies and hosting big dinner parties. She loves cooking Caribbean food for her friends and family to enjoy the simple successes in life.
