RANKX help - ranking by first digit of number?

not sure what is going on here.. but used RANKX in a calculated column to add into a table for a report. 

 

Function here: 

Rank = VAR ThisGroup =  'FA Base Transfer List'[Preference#1] 
RETURN 
    RANKX(Filter('FA Base Transfer List','FA Base Transfer List'[Preference#1] = ThisGroup), 'FA Base Transfer List'[Seniority], ,ASC,Dense)

I am wanting to rank the list of employees by seniority number... the lowest seniority number is the lowest rank. It seems that it is only looking at the first or maybe first and second digit? 477 should be rank #1, not #5 after 4664. Is it something with 3 digit numbers vs 4 digit??

 

And this is what happens:

Maybe it's a text field instead of a number field and that's why?  It is correctly sorted, alphabetically.  But not numerically.
