For me, from application to first day on the job was about six months. But in that time, the company called me to confirm that I was willing to relocate, administered a test (which I was required to fly to Las Vegas to take at my own expense), and then interview, and then wait for the job offer. I probably could have started about 2 weeks to a month earlier but I wanted time to move.
It was an internship and ended in August.
First raise after you pass your 6 months probation, then yearly thereafter.
