At the Aurora Inn Hotel & Event Center, we care about our employees, our guests, and our community. When you join the Aurora Inn Team, you become family. We care about you personally and professionally. Our goal is to offer a positive and healthy work environment. We know that if you are happy, you will treat our guests, friends, and family with kindness and respect. 


Our Aurora Inn family helps each other out at home and on the job. We might plan a benefit for a friend in need, offer to walk a guest’s dog, or leave our typical work area to help a co-worker that’s behind the eight ball.  


The unique environment at the Aurora Inn weaves a hotel, restaurant, tavern and event center for the ultimate guest experience.  As an employee (well… family member) of the Aurora Inn, you’re encouraged to communicate and assist across all functions.
