Accepted Amazon offer. How long does it take for paperwork?

So I've accepted an offer at Amazon last week but they have yet to contact me for the background check and visa transfer. Contacted the recruiter who said he'd look into it asap but that was a couple of days ago and no response yet. Just wondering what the time line looks like after accepting. Thanks!

TC: 95 -> 165

    It depends. For me things went quickly as I had another offer.
    2-3 days for docs provided. Started my Amazon career in 1 week after accepting the offer.

    Between signing the offer and start date I had 2 weeks. That included moving to Seattle. It was also over 5 years ago so things may have slowed down.

    Why AMZN over G?

      The Google team + location I was going for filled the spot as the hiring process took so long. Not interested in moving to California but my offer is valid for a year so you never know lol
