It takes less than a week to get hired, including having a background check.

It was pretty straight-forward; I was hired within a couple days. Once they accept you, you'll need to pass a test and list your qualifications for every subject you wish to teach. Within about 24 hours, someone will review your credentials and you'll be approved to tutor in that subject! After that, it's just a matter of finding students.

A few hours.

Just fill out a free response for the main profile (Wyzant walks you through it start to finish), take subject tests for the subjects you want to tutor, write qualifications for those subjects, pay $7.99 to have a background check done on yourself (optional), and then start applying for jobs. They usually approve (or flag, if clarifications need to be made) any changes I make to my profile or subject qualifications within 48 hours, which is pretty fast.

It took a couple hours to fill out all the forms to prove qualifications and take their online tests. Then it took a few days for them to approve me.
