In my mind it's a bad work environment to not give employees a break during their workday,whether it be 8 hours or more. Their work and attitude are going to reflect this type of approach to running a business. In my experiences and from people I know in the industry breaks are always given,however they can vary from day to day and depending on what tasks are trying to be accomplished. Some days I eat my lunch at noon, other days, 2,3,4,5,6, I just try to look at my schedule for the day and pick a time in which it will least affect my work at hand.
