My name is Barrett Hird, I am the Director of Spa Southern Hills, and I am actively seeking Licensed Massage Therapists to join my diverse team. 20 years ago, my family set out to build Spa Southern Hills inside of the Tulsa Marriott Hotel in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Today, while we have grown exponentially, we continue to be a family owned and operated local small business. In fact, most days, you will find myself, my brother Chandler, and my sister Tori working the front desk, caring for clients, and creating the ever changing, peaceful environment we have come to be known for.
Our biggest hurdle at the moment is finding enough qualified Massage Therapists to fill the 8 massage tables we have for the 7 days a week in which we are open. 15,000 clients passed through our doors last year, 95% of which were from Tulsa and the surrounding area. We have the clientele, what we need, simply put, is you.
I understand that moving from one massage establishment to another can be a scary leap with many unknowns. So, instead of merely listing the requirements for this position, allow me to give you some insight into who we are, what’s important to us, and what you can expect if you join us. These are just a few of the things that set us apart and make Spa Southern Hills a great place to work.
WE KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF FAMILY. At Spa Southern Hills, our therapists and staff are just that, family. During the pandemic we were forced to close. We gave $500 to each of our team members to help put food on their tables. And when we realized that wasn’t enough, we raised over $12,000 for our therapists on GoFundMe through the generosity of our loyal clients.
This certainly wasn’t new ~ In 2016 we developed a micro lending system providing 0% interest personal loans for our people in times of need.
Our work schedules are flexible, we offer annual holiday bonuses, have regular events just for our people and their families, and provide our people with friends and family discounts to help take care of those they love. (Oh…and we are closed Easter, the 4th of July, Thanksgiving, and a few days for Christmas.) Needless to say, we know the value of family.
OUR SUPPORT STAFF ACTUALLY PROVIDE SUPPORT. Our front desk and support staff have two main objectives: to curate unforgettable experiences for our clients and to ensure our massage therapists have what they need to perform at their best.
They know that it’s not just about answering phones, booking appointments, and checking out clients. From prepping towels and hot stones, removing and restocking linens, to all opening, closing, and cleaning duties, our support staff handle all the day to day activities to keep the spa clean, organized, and running smoothly so our massage therapists can focus on the client and treatment at hand.
WE HIRE PROFESSIONALS WHO HAVE A HEART FOR HELPING. Our spa is an ecosystem that touches the lives of over 15,000 people each year. This is both an honor and a responsibility. At Spa Southern HIlls you will have the opportunity to have a positive impact on not just the clients you meet every day, but in the community at large.
2020 has impacted all of us and there is no better time than now to roll our sleeves up and get more involved. We have always been a supporter of Tulsa’s Tristese Grief Center and will continue to do so in bigger ways but we want to do more than that. We will be organizing and providing opportunities for our owners, staff, and massage therapists to come together and give back, as a family. It’s at the heart of who we are.
MASSAGE THERAPISTS ARE ATHLETES, WE TREAT THEM ACCORDINGLY. We know athletes need rest and recuperation for optimal performance. Providing consistent massage coupled with intention is extremely challenging to even the most skilled therapist. We believe that it’s wrong to demand six plus hours of back to back body work without breaks. So we don’t. Our massage therapists dictate how many back to back hours of bodywork they prefer, how long of a break they require between, and which treatments they feel comfortable performing.
We also invest in high end equipment and amenities for our massage therapists to use. Hydraulic massage tables, temperature ready hot stone warmers, commercial towel warmers, luxury headrests, table warmers, air purifiers in every room, and a linen service that delivers fresh linens twice a week. Add a breakroom with massagers, food to keep you fueled, and the ability to trade for free when you’re feeling the need.
WE HAVE YOUR BACK WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR MONEY. Our therapists are paid a commission rate which varies based on the service performed. We never deduct money from therapist’s pay due to specials we run, discounts we give, or services we comp. If your client no-calls/no-shows, you still get paid.
This combined with an average booking rate of 87% in 2021 and a loyal and committed clientele base means you can join us and get right to work doing what you love whether you are from Tulsa, or moving in from out of state.
Therapists earn every penny of their gratuity. It’s why our therapists keep 100% of the gratuity and why we guarantee 15% gratuity on all packages.
Oh, and have a client request? Perfect! We’ll give you a $5 bonus per service when they come in.
Full-time/Part-time positions are available.
Experienced Licensed Massage Theapists with a minimum of 1 year experience are encouraged to apply. Candidates must hold an active Oklahoma license from the Oklahoma State Board of Cosmetology or be eligible to transfer licensure to Oklahoma prior to their first day.
