HOUSTON, Tx. --  Looking for a job and feeling a bit confined in the old 'bump and grind'?

Pay attention because here`s some real 'insider' information you could use.

Every year Fortune releases its list of 100 best places to work. We wanted to know how those companies treat their employees differently in order to make the list.

So check this out:

Timberland, the clothes maker, made the 41st spot on the 2006 list for giving a $3,000 subsidy to employees with hybrid cars.

Quicken loans, the number 5 for this year, sponsors bus rides to Cleveland Cavalier games, and yes their name is on the arena.

And the top biller of 2014, Google, provides washing machines and doctors on site, and gives free meals to all employees.

However, it`s good old number 28, The Container Store, that caught and contained the better part of our attention.  You don`t have to be a software engineer, clothes designer, or investment banker to work there.

Get this, their CEO says the company actually pays their average retail salesperson a nearly 50-thousand dollar salary a year!

The Bureau of Labor Statistics says the national average is about half that.

“There can be some truth to that, we pay people for what they contribute. We look for someone that can really connect with people. and help them try to get organized in their life. It`s kind of a gift.

We`ll say...what do you think? Hit us up on Facebook and let us know. At NewsFix, the benefit of hearing from you makes our jobs 'well worth it.'
