This is an incredible record. A 100-year-old Brazilian man has set the Guinness World Record for the longest tenure at the same company, after working for a textile firm for 84 years. Walter Orthmann, who turned 100 on April 19, started working at ReneauxView, previously called Industrias Renaux S.A., when he was just 15 years old in January 1938.
"Back in 1938, kids were expected to work to help support the family. As the oldest son of five, my mother took me to find a job at the age of 14."
