Employment at the Clinton Inn, COVID-19 and Beyond

Per local government mandates, the Clinton Inn was forced to shut down a majority of its business operations because of the Covid-19 outbreak. While we had a moderately sized staff prior to this event, we had to cut back to a minimal crew and limited hours of operation in order to survive.

Gearing up for Growth

We have reopened the restaurant for dine-in customers. However, we are required to operate at 50% capacity or less. We’re currently operating under limited hours until we can sustain a larger operation.

Despite this, our growth plans are in process and we are working toward staffing for various positions. The positions may be immediate, and for long term business needs. Currently, most of our positions are only part-time due to our limited business hours, and we plan to expand these when the business environment warrants it.

We want our customers to enjoy their experience in our unique and charming historic venue.

A big part of the experience we’re creating is with how our customers are treated and the level of service they receive.
