    How do you guys work out lunches and breaks? I’ve only worked either by myself or as a small group. By myself I tend to skip breaks and sometimes lunch. As a small crew, we usually all take lunch together.

    I’m in the same league: I definitely skip breaks and sometimes lunch.

    When I worked with my father, we all took breaks and lunch at the same time. Now that I work for myself I don’t take breaks very often and lunch is whenever it is convenient v

    I take lunch right around lunch time. I like to get some good food for lunch. Fridays usually include a good beer too. After lunch I take a power nap and at this time I get my material ordered and do some messages and such.

    Break at 10 lunch at 12, we leave at 3:00 so no afternoon break. I pay 8 though.

    We just take half an hour for lunch around 12:30 or 1. We usually have some kind of job shack set up on site, so most of the guys just meet up there.

    Break around 10 or 1030, lunch usually 1230 or 1. I hate taking an early lunch as it makes the afternoon drag.

    Sounds very fair to the crew!

    I tend to skip breaks but never miss my lunch time.

    I try to get lunch all together, makes for a more cohesive team.

    Don’t always take a morning break but when I do it is at 10. Lunch is usually between 12:30 and 1, if I know I am staying late (after 5) I will usually take another 10 minute break around 3.

    Usually I just take a 10 or 15 min lunch. And no real breaks through out the day. I will stop for a drink of water several times a day.

    Did someone say lunch? No breaks, but lunch whenever I can

    Lunch is at noon. We pack M-Th and Friday we go grab something. We have a micro in our trailer for larger projects. I always have leftovers to eat.

    One thing I noticed is eating a better lunch (non-fast food) means I feel better all day. When we used to eat out all the time come 2:30 or so you would just feel like crap. Plus it is expensive to eat out everyday!!

    LOL! As soon as I wrote that I knew someone was going to make that reference.

    We take an hour lunch at the shop. Normally I go home and have something light and relax for a bit. If I’m working for myself I may or may not take any kind of lunch but will often take a couple 10-15 mintute breaks in the day.

    Breaks? What are those….

    I work for myself, so it’s whenever it’s practical for me. If I can take lunch and also pick up material (leave the site once), that’s my preference.

    I make sure to take lunch in between 11 and 12 no matter if I am hungry or not. After high school I got into the habit of not eating when my body told me and it tore my stomach up something fierce. I was on Zantac for years because of it. Ever since then I eat all my meals around the same time.

    Usually no breaks.

    When I had a real job I took breaks and lunch when I felt the need, No regular set time for me. Although officially the break times were 9 & 1 with lunch at 11, Most of the time I didn’t eat a lunch anyway
