One Houston Company Just Gave Every Employee a MAJOR ‘Christmas Bonus’

Back in 2010…it was $35K in cash or a brand new $50K vehicle these lucky employees received as their Christmas BONUS! Even though it seems near impossible to best THAT bonus…this year the company did, and in a HUGE way!


A Houston company just made all of its employees’ Christmas dreams come true after everyone, no matter his or her position or salary, received a $100,000 Christmas bonus.

That’s right: All 1,380 employees at Hilcorp, “one the largest privately held oil and natural gas exploration and production companies in the United States,” according to KTVU, received the large sum as a thank-you for a job well done.

“It’s just a true gift, and I don’t think that myself, along with everyone, is not going to give less than 100 percent every day,” receptionist Amanda Thompson told the news station.

It comes as no surprise that Hilcorp has been named one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For—for the third year in a row.

Thompson told the news station that in 2010, all company employees were given the option of a $50,000 car or $35,000 in cash for meeting a five-year goal.

“It was surreal, it was a dream come true,” said Thompson, who added that she plans to keep the money in her bank account for a rainy day.

I bet the first question on everyone’s mind is… Are they hiring?
