RALEIGH, N.C. — A teen getting ready for his first job interview received some exceptional customer service when he stopped by his local Target for a tie.

The whole Target team helped the young man pick one out and even showed him how to tie it. Then, they offered advice on how to land the job, with tips like “use a firm hand shake” and “remember to make eye contact.”

“We were just here to help a young man get a job and forward his future,” said Dennis Roberts, one of the employees.

As the teen left the store, all the employees cheered him on and wished him good luck.

A curious shopper overheard what was happening and snapped a picture of the heartwarming moment. Since sharing it on Facebook, it has gone viral with more than 45,000 likes.

The Target team took it a step further and visited the Chick-Fil-A where the teen interviewed the next day to share their experience with the manager. They don’t know who the teen is, but the manager did say he’ll let them know if he got the job by the end of this week
