Is this legal?

I applied for a job at Wal-Mart and used this message stating "certain jobs may not be selectable based on your age criteria"

I'm 48 years old.

What could this mean? See message at the bottom of the screenshot.

I actually think this is a minimum age requirement, because you must be at least 18 yrs old to work behind a pharmacy counter. At least that's my take!

Under the ADEA, employers can't: Mention age or say that a certain age is preferred in job ads and recruiting materials; it is questionable but not automatically illegal to ask for date of birth or graduation on a job application. Set age limits for training programs. For more details...

I agree with Kai Dickerson 's guess here... a lot of positions will have a minimum age of 16 - 18!

Have you reported and shown this to the department of labor where you reside?
