    What's the average age of the people you work with?

    I was talking with some people at work and I was told that the average age of the employees in the government agency I work at is about 62.5 years old. OMG!!!

    No wonder they call me a kid, even though I just turned 36 last week! Yikes! I guess to them I really am a kid! hahaha!

    I know at the dot com I used to work at everyone seemed to be in their mid-20's. I'm sure there's some correlation between age and job.

    I have one co-worker that is going to retire in two years when she hits her 50 year anniversary! Apparently she started right after high school.

    What's the average age in your workplace? And what industry do you work in?
    This day will be over... one of these days!

    Excluding the owners (us) I would think about 20 to 25. I feel like a father to everyone.

    I'm 36....I'd guess I'm right about at the average range for the main group I work with now (here in Redmond).

    The group I worked with back in Clearwater, maybe slightly older. I'd guess around 42 or so.

    Average age our office is 45, I'm 48. Company wide across 20 offices and corporate the average is 42. Its actually been a topic of conversation about the future and getting some young blood. The vast majority are between 30 and 60+ and even a couple over 70. Our business is industrial distribution.

    I'm at the young end of the spectrum, although now that I'm a few years into it I'm no longer instructing med students who are 5-10 years older than me.

    It sometimes strikes me odd that not only do I not know the average age of my coworkers, I work with about 30 people and I have no idea what 25 of them look like. I don't even know the sex of a handful (foreign names). I work from home, it is just me and my laptop here.

    Mathematically, yes, it is possible.

    I'd say the average age in my office is about 28. It might even be lower than that... lots of people in their early-to-mid twenties. Our manager is around 40. I'm 26, so it seems I'm about the "right" age. Industry is PR.

    Behavioral healthcare. About 500 employees. I'd say the average age is around 45.

    I'm the oldest in the office. Average age is about 30-35. I don't get no respect.

    About the same...average around 45-50...I'm 24.

    That's not so bad though. Most of them are easy enough to talk to and there's a few people about my age. The big downer is we're an engineering development and test center; Almost no ladies.

    Mechanical engineering here. But there are some hot young chicks all over customer service, sales, and marketting.

    I wasn't trying to brag, it just strikes me odd how strange my work environment is now versus what it used to be.

    If I were to brag, yes I have it made. No alarm clock, I ride whenever I want, I nap (I am old). No boss around. Oh I just can't go on, I am starting to piss even myself off.
