I just started a month ago in Dallas. I ran out my hours and was limpin along on hours coming on and off past few days. I needed a reset. One of the dispatchers told me on my way back into the barn to "come on back and lets get you a reset". I had no hours yesterday but gained more at midnight tonight but reset is not until 10am. Boom phone rings after midnight. The dispatcher yelled at me, and insisted I take a load right away since I have enough hours for it. I explain I am doing my reset and will be available at 10am so could take a load going out anytime after that. He says I'm useless to him and they "will just call me monday then". couching me. I like this company so far. I'm good at what I do with 10+ years of perfect records with my past company but I have got to say the dispatchers here border abusive. They seem to be a bunch of Aholes. a earlier in the week, I am out of Dallas and ran down to El paso on short hours. I had just enough to come back next day which I was told would happen. Then instead, I get a load put on me for 200 miles to AZ. If I take it I will be stuck with no hours next day stuck in a room for a reset there. I call central and ask if I have the hours. I didn't know yet how to check on the computer system and didn't know if central knew. I didn't refuse the load. I just sincerely asked the question. The guy hangs up on me, removed the load and writes up that I refused a load because the miles were short. Not sure what to think. If this is the culture here I don't think I want it.
