Are you supposed to stagger drywall joints in a corner? Meaning full sheet of wall 1 on top, cut sheet on bottom and full sheet on top and cut sheet on bottom on wall 2 as well. Or flip them, full on top of wall 1, full on bottom of wall 2?

no it is not nessessary to stagger the joints around a corner. you should stagger the butt joints (the non beveled edges) between the top and bottom rows of drywall.

yeah, they definitely tiled over backerboard with no vapor barrier, no membrane and no waterproofing! To top it all off they used mastic to put up 12x12 tiles on the wall.
