I think it takes at least 2 weeks to get hired. The first step is be patient a couple days, 2nd step is call and check on your app the 3rd day, 3rd step is to keep calling until you get a call back.

One week tops. I applied there on monday and was going in to training on friday that same week. Training is usually on friday-weekends so if you want to get hired and start as fast as possible apply early in the week.
