Understanding SharePoint Alerts 
 
In SharePoint 2010 and 2013,  the below jobs are responsible for email alerts.
  1. Job-immediate-alerts
  2. Job-daily-alerts
  3. Job-weekly-alerts  
Immediate Alerts Job - sends out email immediately from the SharePoint environment
Daily Alerts Job - Sends out email everyday
Weekly Alerts Job - Sends out email on every week.
 
Resolution :
 
Please try to enable immediate job  alerts once through stsadm commands , this may solve your alert issue.
 
stsadm -o setproperty -propertyname job-immediate-alerts -propertyvalue "every 5 minutes" -url  "http://myhost/mysite"
 
 Happy SharePointing :-)
