I've actually tried... doesn't work :/ If they do tell you anything, it's usually just that they found a better candidate... I think that's just a cookie-cutter response though.
I was sent a letter by General Motors once that said, "we regret to inform you that you have not been chosen. Please do not request for a reason." <-basically... I wrote them anyways because I KNOW it performed top in all the testing they made me go through. They wrote me back and basically said, "I'm sure you are disappointed, but as stated prior, we do not provide information as to the reason you were not chosen."
In that case, I found out what appeared to be the true reason later... the only reason they were hiring was because a new union contract required them to hire 1000 more people. After they did the hiring, they told everyone that the new vehicle was going to require 10% fewer employees. So of those people hired, many would be laid off (my dad worked there also... so he attended this meeting). Basically, they hired the people that performed poorly so they would have reason to fire them later (assuming that these people would suck on the job also). They just wanted to satisfy the union deal.
