I originally had all my servers being backed up in one job, but when one failed, that usually caused the remaining servers to not be backed up for that night.  So, I broke them out into each server having it's own backup job.  I scheduled them to start 5 mins apart, even though it will take more than 5 mins for the job to complete.  I have jobs that run from 6:30pm to 8:15pm.  The jobs seem to complete out of order though.  What I want to know is, if I have a job that starts at 6:30 and finishes at say...7:18, will the job at 7:20 start next or would the one I originally scheduled for 6:35 start?

It depends on how long a job will try to run before it errors out.  In the job scheduling check the time window setting for when the job must start.  And then if that time runs out what happens?  Then you check the restart time interval or the scheduling for when it will be scheduled to run next.  Ideally you can watch the backups over time and estemate with good aproximation how long each will take, then create rules accordingly as to when each job should start and how much leway you can give.

I have a calendar printed on the wall next to my server that shows exactly when all major events happen like backups, full virus scans, and other mgmt tasks.
