“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, ” receptionist Amanda Thompson told the news station.

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

Thompson told the news station that in 2010, all employees were given the option of a $50, 000 car or $35, 000 in cash for meeting a 5 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.
