We welcome individuals who can make a commitment to Omega's work and live up to those commitments while supporting the needs of the Wellness Center.

We seek individuals who see beyond the goal of a weekly paycheck, knowing that time spent at Omega is fulfilling on many levels. Your livelihood is a worthwile concern, and there is opportunity to experience financial reward while engaged at the Wellness Center, however, we discourage this as a prime motivation for applying. We can not guarantee the number of appointments each day. If you have reservations with regard to your fiscal needs, please reconsider your application. If however you are open to a truly transformational experience, including the chance to enjoy great meals, attend staff classes and enjoy our beautiful campus, then we are the place for you!

Q: Do I need to be NY License within my field in order to apply to the Wellness Center?
A: Yes. If the state requires a license for the service you perform then that license must be issued by NY state.

Q: Do you accept Limited Permits for LMT's?
A: Yes. Please email FeelGood@eOmega.org with more detail of your inquiry.

Q: If contracted, what happens next?
A: If verbally contracted you will receive a letter of agreement along with our policy and procedure handbook. Attendance at our Wellness Orientation meeting in April will be required.

Q: What do I need to bring with me to my shift?
A: The Omega Wellness Center provides all the standard equipment that is necessary to perform our services (massage tables, music, oil and cremes, etc). Some services however require additional supplies which we do not provide. This is discussed in more detail during the interview process.

Q: Is there a dress code?
A: Yes, if you perform a service within the Body Therapies, Skin Care, Treatments or Wellness Sessions, please wear tan bottoms and a white top, or all white. These garments can be in the style of your liking as long as there are no rips, tears or stains and are free of logo's. Street shoes are not allowed in treatment rooms.

Q: Are meals provided?
A: Each shift allows for at least a 30 minute meal break. We welcome you to attend these meals in our dining hall, free of charge, on the days you are on shift. We also have a great café where you can find a snack or a sweet treat.

A: Yes, many! When you become a Wellness Provider you are entitled to a variety of Omega discounts (Workshops, Bookstore, Café) as well as an opportunity to attend evening programs and some of the staff classes. This is discussed in the Handbook you will receive.

Q: How and when are appointments made for the clients?
A: Appointments are made by our reservation team (aka: Booking Agents, who are Omega seasonal staff). These individuals determine the times that are most appropriate for our guests based on their availability and the demand for the service. Providers are expected to be available and accessible for the duration of their entire shift so that we may book accordingly.

Q: Can you guarantee a number of appointments each day?
A: Although we can not guarantee the number of appointments you will have each day, we do aim to book you for as many sessions as possible. If you have concern of being overbooked (5 or more hrs per shift) then we encourage you to consider one of the shorter shifts we offer. If you have a concern for being under booked (from none to 3 hrs per shift) please refer to our FAQ section Who Should Apply?

Q: How do guests learn about the work I do?
A: We require that you submit a personal bio in the application. These bios are edited and then added to our service binders and placed throughout the campus for our guests to review. We also encourage you to offer sample demo sessions to the Wellness Staff. The more they know about you and the services you offer the more capable they are in sharing information about you and the work you do.

Q: Are schedule changes/requests permitted?
A: We rely on your commitment to the days and times states in your work agreement. Schedule changes are considered on a case by case basis. Generally, if you are unable to cover your shift it is your responsibility to find a replacement. Failure to do so can result in a release from your Wellness agreement.
