Routings Labor and Machine Time

I have an operation that I've never encountered before, but I assume is quite common, and therefor it is confusing me.

We have laborers who spend 5 minutes loading and unloading a machine, but then the machine runs for 20 minutes unattended. I'm not sure how to set up the routing in this case. They currently only have 5 minutes in the EP labor field of the operation detail screen, and nothing else.

Is this creating a mindset that this product can be produced in 5 minutes whereas in actuality it takes 25 minutes? Currently they only have one workcenter and it is labor category. They do not have anything accounting for machine time because they do not want added cost to the part.

(The laborer operates 4 or 5 machines so while the machine is running he is working on loading/unloading another machine).
