I want to share my experience with you (employment base). I was a J1 visa holder, I switched to F1, I got CPT from school and found a job in July 2017. The company decided to sponsor me.
So this is the timeline for my 485 application:

02/13/2018 Priority Date
06/05/2018 PERM approved
11/16/2018 EAD and advance parole Approved
11/26/2018 received EAD/advance parole
04/16/2019 received R.F.E. letter for the i140
05/23/2019 i140 approved
07/22/2019 case transferred to another office
08/26/2019 case ready to be scheduled for interview
08/30/2019 interview was scheduled
09/07/2019 received interview letter
10/07/2019 interview (Baltimore office)
Case must be reviewed (because I changed employers, so I brought 485j form at the interview)
10/09/2019 Case approved
10/11/2019 card mailed
10/15/2019 Post Office picked up card & I got the 485 and 485j approval notice in my mail box
10/18/2019 card in hand

Thank you all for sharing your experiences here. I learned a lot during the process from this forum. That's why I decided to share it with you.
Interview was smooth (IO asked for my birth certificate, i20's, confirm name/d.o.b/name of parents, he asked for my last entry, i94), he asked if i work for the i140 petitioner, I said NO, then I gave him my 485j supplement. And then case had to be reviewed. I think the key point in all this process is to maintain status and to have patience.

I'm in a similar situation as I changed employer and submitted supplement J at the interview. But i'm in retrogression train and waiting for decision... Was it a smooth interview for you? What docs did you provide other than Supplement J? offer letter, paystub. anything else?

From the new employer I just gave the supplement J and an employment letter. No pay stubs, because I didn't start work for them until after the interview. They did not ask for anything else from the new employer.

The interview was smooth. Just confirmed my personal info from the application, showed them the birth certificate, i94s, all the i20s copies. This is what they asked for.
