How long does an interview process typically take in RE?

For analyst associate roles - say you have a phone screen, 1st round, final round, etc.  

How long does the entire process typically take, assuming they're looking for an immediate start?  And how long between the phone screen, first round, and final round does it take to hear back?

There's no real answer to this other than, "it depends".

How immediate is the need? Are they expanding the team or replacing an outgoing person? How much lead time did that outgoing person give them? How big is the team? Do they prefer for the candidate to meet with everybody on the team or just some key individuals?

Modeling test can come early or late in the process. Some might prefer to have one phone screen, then weed people out with the modeling test so the higher level people only talk to a select number of people. Others wait until toward the end to do the test.
