I can see you are weighting the size of a job, so that should help increase 
its priority and get in front of the other jobs.

To see how the priorities for waiting jobs are being calculated run "sprio -l" 
and you'll see how those priorities are working out.   That will let you 
juggle the weightings to get what you want.

All the best,
