What does 'no room hour' mean when applying for chefing jobs?

I've seen this come up on a few job listings. Anyone know what it means?

Re: What does 'no room hour' mean when applying for chefing jobs?

Gotta love the literal translation.

Many hospitality jobs come with shifts and often between shifts, there's a long break, the so-called "Zimmerstunde" (Zimmer = room, Stunde = hour). The break can be up to several hours. This time is free time, but it results in very long days, obviously.

If it says there are no Zimmerstunden, I would assume it means that the working hours are "normal" as in no long breaks between shifts/no split shifts.
