CFI-Pay/Hometime Question

Hello - let me first say how much I appreciate everyone that contributes to this site !! I am currently in the planning stage to get my CDL and CFI is a company I am interested in. I was hoping if someone might know how it works if you do not live near a terminal and cannot take truck home for hometime due to lack of parking near the house (I live in New Jersey) ? Where can I park truck safely, etc ? Also can someone tell me what the CPM rate is for rookie drivers and when and how much does the CPM rate go up if at all during first year of driving,

Thank you

Company DOT physical

Let me clarify. I have mild carpul tunnel syndrome in my left wrist and left elbow area. I recently had to stop doing a job I had that required repetative grabing and lifting with my left hand and arm. Let me stress the word "repetative". I can lift heavy items with both arms I can also lift a heavy item with my left arm. My struggle is the repetative lifting which I was doing 100 to 150 times pet 8hr shift. I am concerned this might disqualify me even though I can function and lift ust fine just not the repetative stuff. I want to go flat bed which takes a a fair amount of physical work several times a week loading and unloading but my arm problem would not prevent me from doing that. Would a DOT examiner from trucking company think differently, I am not sure about that.

I was not trying to be deceptive, more so trying to avoid confusion and disqualification for something that I think should not disqualify me.

Maybe I should contact the company I am interested in and talk with them about it before I even start the application process.

Thanks for all the feedback.

Sleeping in Truck

I was wondering how hard it is to get used to sleeping in the truck with the engine idling and other trucks idling around you .? Is the idling sound pretty loud and how is the process of getting used to the constant sound ?

Thanks
