Inconsistent Results when Running Flow

This flow has failed at several different locations. It has failed to create a PDF, it has failed to send an email, and it has failed to delete a document. Can someone suggest tweaks that I could make to this flow to make it run more consistently? Please and thank you!

Okay, I will do that. Would that fix the email not sending issue as well?

@EmployeeA  the email error is refering to a permission, please see if your user has permissions to send messages with that mailbox, your user needs to be part of the group mail sharebox

I tried resubmitting one of the flows using the delay, and it still failed at the Create PDF step

Looking at the pattern of failures, I think it  might have something to do with Users who submit their Company Name with "&", "/", and potentially other characters. Do you think those characters are negatively impacting the flow? If so, what can I do to prevent that interference? I've noticed that no other submissions that have succeeded contain those characters.
