“doing” or “working”?

English is my second language. Which sentence is correct? Or are both basically the same thing. 

I think I’m going to start working more shifts too.

    I would never say "do a shift" or "doing a shift".

    "working". You don't "do" a shift.  It's poor English.

    "Doing" sounds more natural to me.

    The first version is better-worded and technically correct, but both versions sound natural and mean the same thing.
