I personally feel age is just a number. How good is he as a leader to lead the team too. Knowledge is the only thing.

Actually, I would report to my Senior. Senior not by age, I would report who is more knowledgeable and powerful person from me. I should respect his definition.

I don't have any issue, in my previous organization I have to report a younger person and I appreciate his talent, skills, ability to leading a team, I took him as a role model. And again I am applying for this perticular post so I don't care about the age of my boss.

Yes of course. Age does not matter because he is talented so that he is in that position without any feeling I will report that person. I will take him as my inspiration to grow thoroughly and work hard for it.

Seniority at work is not about the age, but rather about the knowledge, experience and good works, reporting to a younger person than me is nice because I gain more from him/her.

Being an employee, I have report higher authority. Higher position depending on skill, talent, ability and knowledge etc. Not dependent on age so sincerely I will report.

Even An out of order wall clock or wrist watch also shows correct time two times a day. Earlier he/she had also worked on that same post/position as a responsible employee he/she must be given a chance to perform his/her duty whether she/he has the ability or not.

Company's policies must have strictly adhered too.

Besides, there is a difference between younger/Junior and elder/senior.

As an avid and relentless learner, reporting to a younger person, who on the other hand happens to be my senior with relevant experience.

There is no big deal because whatever attitude I portray will either make or mar the reputation of the department.

Therefore, I will ensure I provide the maximum support and cooperation needed and also respect the individual based base on what he/she represents.

If I have to report somebody, my attitude towards the person is not going to change on the basis of the age of the person. Age is just a number for me as it can not be regarded as a parameter to access one's calibre and intelligence. The other being younger to me hold the same respect as somebody older to me. So, here in this situation, I feel motivated while reporting to somebody younger to me and appreciate the achievement.

I have got nothing to do with the age of the person I am reporting to. His/Her qualifications, experience, knowledge and efforts might have lead to achieve good designation. As of me, it is reporting to my higher up and it is part of my job.
