I am running quorum nodes via the Quorum-maker script, and when trying to call functions from my already deployed smart contract, I get this error :

Transaction 0xe5f8c89e132ab29fa02702ea957318d7b45f788093086f1c452657c92f6e8f8c 
wasn't processed in 240 seconds!

I admit I am calling the function in a for loop over 250 times, but that isn't supposed to interfere with the queue, right? My function call is just a simple adding of a person in a person mapping nothing complex. What can the problem be?

Depending on what gas price have you setted, and the state of the network, transactions can take up to several hours or days to be processed. Check https://ethgasstation.info/ for estimates on recomended gas price.
