Texas billionaire Jeffery Hildebrand, owner of Hilcorp Energy, continued a tradition of large bonuses this year by offering employees $100,000 each.

“How many companies give its employees a holiday, or end-of-the-year bonus?

And what is that bonus? A few hundred dollars? Maybe a thousand?

A Texas billionaire is blowing all bonuses out of the water. And for Jeffery Hildebrand, mega bonuses are nothing new.


Five years ago, according to Forbes, Hildebrand gave each employee a choice of $35,000 cash or $50,000 toward a new car.

This year, he’s doubled the bonus to $100,000. Yes, that’s almost double what an average American makes in a year.” said


Hildebrand owns Hilcorp Energy, the country’s largest privately held oil and gas production company, which employs about 1,400 workers, Forbes reported.

Amanda Thompson, a receptionist for 10 years, said of the bonus when asked, “It’s a true gift. And I think myself, as long as everyone else is not going to give any less than 100 percent each day.”
