In my experience (i.e. every time I forgot to promote a cadet/senior) it's usually because the person who is responsible for submitting the promotion doesn't realize that the cadet is eligible.
However, if the person handling cadet promotions knows that Tentpole is eligible and waiting for promotion, then as Bob said, there should be zero delay and approval should be immediate.
I'm a group commander and spent a few minutes doing some spot checks of the units in my group. I found a lot of these, from two weeks to six months.

I had 4 Cadets finish requirements for promotion tonight (all were waiting on CD and drill tests which were complete tonight) and before I could get home and key everything in I had messages from 3 of them asking when they would be promoted in eServices.
Based on my observations, I think the problem is the cadets don't necessarily always know to do this, even if they think to themselves "hmmm, maybe I should let someone know, but who?" I think it's simply a lack of communications, and not on the side of the cadets. A young cadet, 12, 13, or even 15 years old, may not feel comfortable communicating with a senior member.

If we didn't care how it was worn, we would have a 154-page PDF explaining uniforms and a 41-page PDF explaining awards.
We shouldn't go in with the mindset of "I don't care, as long as it looks good." I understand not knowing and not checking, so you slap it on the way you think it goes, and then you're corrected later and so you fix it.
Anyway, I think I've said my piece on this topic. I was following it since I'm pending the final approval for a Lifesaving award. I'm curious as to how it's supposed to be worn since this is something I'll be presenting for the first time and never paid much attention to.
