A question for the swifty's

Mark, G-town is providing you good advise! I have been with Swift for 3 months. I'm a rookie but I am 56yrs old. Remember, people only write or report the bad of anything. If things are going well who takes the time to say things are great, nobody. However, so far everything has met or above my expectations at Swift. The mentor they assigned my was great! Lots of driving experience, retired AF Veteran. He answered all my questions, let me drive and do most of the backing. He constantly drilled into me Safety First!!!! I have a great Driver Mgr. he is always looking after his drivers best interests and gives you air cover when needed. But does not tolerate Lying, Laziness, or being disrespectful. His team of drivers is called the "Elite Fleet" to which I have the privilege to be apart of. Remember you got to get experience somewhere. For me it is Swift. I get plenty of miles, great benefits, and I'm already ranked as Platinum because of the amount of miles I have driven, no accidents or incidents, 100% on time pick-up/delivery. If I do that for 3 straight years I will make Diamond. There is only a few drivers that acheive this status. Do your research then get started and remember Safety First Always!!!
