didn't get the job - is it ok to call & ask how to better my chances next time?
I got the call this morning - on my answering machine...the capt. left his name & number...
Is it ok to call back & ask him how to improve my chances next time?
If not or so...any advice?

Defeinitely OK. I've done it and have found out the the successful applicant had a particular qualification above mine which put them in a better position. I then knew what I needed to do when reapplying in the future for that or any other job....
I think any decent employer should provide some sort of feedback.Luke

By all means YES. But with a qualifier.....
If a candidate looks me up after an exam I will help him or her ONLY IF they are seeking information on how to better perform. If I get any inclination that they are disputing their score, I am done with the conversation.
None of us are successful with everything we do. The best way to get better is to get feedback. In the testing process, it's rare.
I would encourage you to put on a suit and tie and a humble attitude and go to the station and seek information on how to better perform.
