OpenShifts appear when your employer creates shifts that you and your coworkers can pick up yourselves. Taking an OpenShift automatically adds the shift to your schedule.

You can also take OpenShifts from your computer or iPhone/iPad.

  • OpenShifts are available for all qualified and available employees.
