Q2. Have you ever lost a job during the project?

Q3. Have you ever walked off a job? (You can talk about a *friend* if it helps.)

Q4. Have you had to file a mechanic’s lien?

Q5. How can you avoid problems during the project?

Q6. What role does paperwork play in problem negation or prevention?

Q7. Do you go forward with change order scope if the paperwork isn’t signed?

Q7b. Will you go forward on a change order with a verbal or email approval?

Q8. Will repeated problems be a reason to fire client/sub?
