Condor will try to run as many jobs simultaneously as it can find resources for.  So if you submit 5 jobs and have 5 resources (cpus) available, Condor will run 5 jobs at once.

Perhaps your situation is you have a pool with just one machine that has one cpu?  Thus only one job runs at a time?  If so, you can get 2 (or more) jobs to timeshare by setting
    NUM_CPUS = 2
in your condor config and then restarting Condor.
