You can use DLYJOB to cause something to pause for a given number of seconds...or use a job scheduler.
I have found (over too many years!) that it is not a good practice to rely on clock timings for when jobs should be executed. Rather, use the earlier jobs to establish favorable conditions for the subsequent job's execution by controlling execution using completion messages/indicators in a dataarea.
What exactly are you trying to pull off here?

Subject: Delay Job Question
I have a simple CL job that submits about 8 jobs. 2 jobs should fire off immediately, 3 jobs should fire off about 15 minutes later and the other 3 about 15 minutes after that. is there a simple way to code the CL job with this parameter or am I way off base?
