It's important to me to work in an environment where I get to choose my own break times and have some say in my schedule (within reason). I strongly dislike the notion of an employee needs to be sitting at their desk from 9 to 5 and if they're not, they're not doing their job.
If there isn't really any work to do at a moment, then I think it's OK to take a small break and maybe grab coffee from across the street. If I'm fatigued, I think it's also OK to take a small break. Conversely, if there's a need to stay late, I'm OK with this too. I had a job where the manager wanted everyone to take their break from noon to one. I really didn't like this and I wasn't even hungry at this time anyway.
I have an interview coming up. How can I ascertain this information about the workplace? What questions can I ask and how exactly should I phrase them? In general, I'd like to work at workplace that is more concerned with output than input, so to speak.
