Note: This is a full-time, evening position. We also currently have a full-time, morning position open. Please note in your application which position you are applying for.

Important: Let us know in your cover letter if you've floated before, and (whether or not you have) what you think is most interesting about it. (Previous float experience is nice but not required.)

We're looking for one new Float Facilitator to start immediately.

As a float facilitator, you will provide flotation wellness services, instructing clients and maintaining the float rooms. Our clients look forward for days to their appointments; they go in their appointments tense and you will help them emerge relaxed and smiling.

FLOAT is a friendly, professional, welcoming and enthusiastic wellness environment. Since 2015, we have provided flotation REST services to the public for stress management and personal spiritual exploration.

While the feeling we aim to evoke may be relaxed, we will expect professionalism and respect of clients and fellow staff members. We will let our staff and customers be who they are regardless of orientation, race, size or gender, and work hard to provide a comfortable and relaxing environment for everyone. We encourage diversity among our small staff, to better serve a wide range of clients.

Escape Pod filtration system

Duties include: making appointments, working with our online scheduling system, orienting and educating clients, cleaning, sanitizing and re-setting the float tanks between clients, daily tank testing and maintenance (we will train you on that), maintaining the appearance of the facility (i.e. light but frequent cleaning), doing laundry, responding to email and answering the phone. You will frequently supervise the center on your own. Other duties as assigned.

The ideal qualified candidate will have customer service experience, be familiar with the health and wellness industry, be detail-oriented, care strongly about cleanliness, communicate well by email, and have the ability to be on their feet for extended periods of time. We'd like you to be interested in and willing to learn about float therapy. CPR training is a plus.

Physical requirement: must be able to lift and carry 50 lbs up a flight of stairs (that's a bag of salt.) You must be vaccinated against Covid-19.

Pay: $18.00/hour

Hours: 32–40 hr/wk.

We typically run three overlapping shifts a day, one from 6:30a–3:30p, 10:30a–5:30p, and 4:30–11:30p. Our current need is for someone comfortable with working mostly evenings, including weekends. (We are willing to be flexible around your schedule from week to week, and will never expect you to do closing and opening shifts back to back.)

Benefits: One hour paid time off per 25 worked (approximately 8 paid days per year, if working 32 hours/week). Flexible unpaid time off.

Retirement IRA with matching contributions.

Floating for free is a perk of this job — and also a requirement! We understand that very few people here have actually floated before, and that is not expected of job candidates. But we want you to be able to talk to our customers about it, so we will make time for you to float frequently.

Details: Probationary period of three months, to make sure it's a good fit for all of us.

The job is located at FLOAT, 515 Medford St, Somerville, MA 02145.
