  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 have worked at Burke Williams for thirteen years. I have made enduring friendships and had support through all the experiences of my life. Yes, in those years I have seen more changes than I can count, but what I know to be true and can feel is that those changes have always been made with good intentions and lots of heart. I am honored to have been a part of journey that is always trying to move in a positive direction. The diversity, kindness and humor of the staff that work at Burke Williams are what will keep me for years to come.

    Cons

    Change is a part of our company, for some that can feel scary. For me it is empowering and proves the company's commitment to growth and development.
