It took 2+ years for me. Started PERM process with immigration lawyers in Oct 2019, received i140 in Dec 2021. Keep in mind this was during covid. My priority date is Sept 2020.
Employer can withdraw your i140 within 180 days of approval. So, safer to change job after 180 days to keep your priority date.

If your new job profile is similar to the role for which your PERM was issued, then you can keep your original priority date.
If your new job profile is different then I think your PD will also refresh with the new PERM.
Do research more on this topic. Writing it from my memory

I think when your I-485 has been pending for 180 days.
