If you installed a copper pipe next to the shower head, and realized you ran out of fasteners, knowing this will create a problem ten years down the road, what do you do?

Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a Plumber interview

How to Answer

If you have run into this problem before you can certainly let the interviewer know about what you did when that happened. If you have not, it is best to answer this question in a "what if" manner rather than just saying that you don't know.
