  • It depends on where you live. In my state, there's no delay, but other states I've seen people say they've been waiting months. Also, in some states you have a week that is called your "wait week". In mine, it's a week where you don't get paid. It's kind of a "let's hope you get a job and we can all avoid all the paperwork involved here" kind of thing.
