Q: Who Should Apply?

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 cannot guarantee the number of appointments you will have 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 opportunity to experience great complimentary meals, attend special 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: No. All massage therapists must be licensed by NYS.
Q: If hired, what happens next?
A: Once hired, you will receive a Letter of Agreement, all appropriate tax information and our Provider Handbook.
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. Our dress code is a combination of white and tan or all white or all tan.

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: Wellness Concierge, 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 cannot guarantee the number of appointments you will have each day, we do aim to book you for as many sessions as possible. Bookings vary based on the time of year, type of workshop on campus and workshop attendance.
Q: How do guests learn about the work I do?
A: We recommend you submit a personal bio; you are given the opportunity during the application process. We also encourage you to offer demo sessions to our seasonal 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 in your Letter of Agreement. If you are unable to cover your shift, it is your responsibility to fine coverage/replacements. Failure to do so can result in a release from your hire agreement.
