    This is the first job in the IDLE section in the showq output.  And the
approximate start time of that job can be seen with:
    showstart <jobid>

Remember this start time is also a "best guess" in relation to the job mix,
and setup parameters below.
Checkjob <jobid>  will show you a bit more info as well.

Depending on your setup of the above, yes.
