Former Signing Ninja

What would you say would be warning signs to look out for, though?
I've worked for restaurants, grocery store chains and a big box bookstore that went under.
Have they changed leadership a stupid number of times in the past couple of years?
Have any of your paychecks bounced or have they asked you to wait till next week to cash them?
Do they keep coming up with new plans to make things better, usually every 3 months of so? Also known as rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.
Are the bill collectors calling the store?
My favorite exchange with a bill collector, was when I was working as the office manager for Borders while it was going down, and a lawyer called about the laundry bills.
I had no skin in the game so I asked him how it felt to work his ass off to get through law school to become a glorified bill collector.
Did they seem to be having meetings every week and now it's dead quiet from above?
There are a bunch more but those are a good start.
