Company gives all employees $100K Christmas bonus

- A Houston company is giving all of its employees, no matter what their position is, a Christmas bonus they'll never forget.

Employees say the company issued the generous pat on  the back for a job well done throughout the year.

All 1,380 employees at Hilcorp, one the largest privately held oil and natural gas exploration and production companies in the United States, received a $100,000 Christmas bonus this year. 

"It's just a true gift and I don't think that myself along with everyone is not going to give less than 100% every day" said receptionist Amanda Thompson. 

Hilcorp was named on the 2015 'Fortune 100 'Best Companies to Work For' list for the third year in a row. 

Thompson says that in 2010, the company met a 5 year goal, and all employees were treated to the choice of a $50,000 car or $35,000 in cash.

"It was surreal, it was a dream come true" says Thompson.

She plans to keep the money in her bank account for a rainy day
