Green top vs blue top for covering screws
So I get the difference between green top and blue top compound, green top first for setting the tape. But for covering screws do I need the glue in the green, or do I just use blue?

I really don't think it would make any difference.

they just drywalled 4,000 sq ft here at work and used the green top to cover all the screws with the initial coat and did all the taping with it

Doesn't make any difference--Most tapers will cover the screws with what's in the pan at the time.

Great answers. Thanks all!

Green lid is perfectly acceptable for all coats when finishing. I personally don't use or recommend lightweight compounds (blue lid) as they don't set up as hard.
