It could be as short as two weeks and as long as three months
If there is a place the tell you to go and click on and its not showing, It could be because you are using your phone and not a computer. Sometimes a computer is best when doing an application because some phone will not show you the complete process.
Very basic process

Took me 2 months. Did the drug test and all that in Sept. 2017, was hired and started a few weeks after that.
Depends on the position

On my application it said "Position Filled." and MY JOB STATUS: Not Moved Forward..Yeah, I'm done with Amazon..I wasted like 3 1/2 months waiting to get hire..All for nothing..They are doing this for scamming us with the lame emails and long process...I will never apply at Amazon again! :)
It took 2 weeks to go through to get hired n set up for orientation.

I applied in January 2018. Drove there, did the drug test, picked my schedule, had my pic taken for the badge. Now it is March 21, 2018 and they still keep sending me emails "So, we’re working on it, and we’ll let you know just as soon as your start dates become available."
I applied on Dec 20, 2017, but they never contact me again on my email...the last email I got was the Amazon New Hire Orientation Update on Jan 2, 2018..They still post their job offer on Craiglist everyday for hiring Fresh Sortation Associate...Amazon is a waste of time...Guys just move on and apply else where..
