  We are committed to creating abundance in your life. We’re proud to say that many of our employees stay with Burke Williams for a very long time—in fact, many of them have been with us for over 10 years. We invite you to get to know us!  


" About 15min into  my practical interview, the manager stopped me and said ‘I want you to work for me, you have a magic touch. You aren’t going any-where, I want you to stay with us, and I am going to train you to be the best massage therapist'.
It has been almost 10 years since I was hired, yet I am still in love with Burke Williams; my beautiful family that lets me enjoy going to work every day. I went through one of the hardest times in my life during my first year of employment, and my Burke family of employees and managers were the backbone through it all. It's hard to find words to express my gratitude for being supported throughout the years of service I have given to Burke Williams.”

-Rosalba, Massage Therapist - Burke Williams San Jose


"During the hard economic times of 2008, I felt the company continued to do their best to put the employees first, and I still feel that support today. It resonates with me to know that Bill and Theresa along with all of the Burke Williams core team stand behind me and truly want the best for all of their employees to create a healthy and harmonious work environment. That heart and support steams from above, so when things are good there, its good here in the spa. Everything starts from Bill and Theresa."

- Akemi, Massage Therapist - Burke Williams Mission Viejo

    I have been working at Burke Williams full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I feel valued as an employee. Management takes an active role in making sure we are doing alright, checking in with body mechanics, seeing if WE need a massage, if we are getting everything we need. Coworkers are like family- always checking in and making sure we are having a good day. We all work hard so we can have fun. And There’s so much laughter and fun to be had! The management team is one of the best I’ve ever worked for.
    Our treatment rooms are spacious, have sinks and iPads in every room. There is a steady flow of guests and we consistently stay busy.

    Cons

    There are really only 2 cons - Parking: it would be great if all employees could park on sight instead of having to walk across the street. Uniform Pants: they do not have much stretch, are made for those with a very straight, narrow frame, and are either too small or too big for most employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! This is one of the best management teams we’ve had!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Burke Williams (Sherman Oaks, CA) in June 2019.

    Interview

    I loved the interview process. They really focused more on emotional intelligence. He really tried to get to know me on an emotional level. Trying to see how I would conduct myself under stress and how I conduct myself around others. We talked about pros and cons of past employment.
