Target Employees Prep Teen for Job Interview When He Shops for a Tie

by -


A Target shopper snapped a photo on Wednesday of an employee who was providing loving care for a young man who came in looking for a clip-on tie for a job interview.

The Raleigh, North Carolina department store didn’t stock the easy-on ties, so the employee picked out a full sized one, created the knot, and slipped it over the youth’s head.

“The store only had regular ties, so this awesome Target team member took the time to help the nervous teen put on his new tie,” wrote Audrey Mark on Target’s Facebook page, where she shared her photo.

He did more than fix his tie. Several Target employees began giving him tips on how to win over the job interviewer.

Dennis Roberts told local news channel WTVD, “We said, ‘Make sure you look him in the eye … make sure you give him a firm handshake.'”  Cathy Scott showed him how.

“As the kid exited the store, a bunch of supportive Target team members cheered him on!” Audrey exclaimed in her Facebook post. “THIS is true customer service!!

“Bought headbands, ham, and had my heart warmed.”
