Very quick. If you get one of the earliest appointments of the day and arrive with plenty of time to line up in the security queue you can be in and out in less than an hour (once security opens)

SLower turn-around times compared to other locations, but they are very familiar with the E-3, so the interviews are usually quick and straightforward.

Administrative Processing added 3 extra days to the process. This was my third Visa, so be prepared for this unless applying for your first or second Visa.

Super easy, didn't have to wait long for an appointment, took 7 days from date of interview to get passport back (sent to Sydney).

You get in line for the 9:45 entry, doesn’t seem to matter if you’re end of the line / last let in

The wait time to get into the consulate was extremely long. I had a 9am appointment and didn’t get in until 10:30am. Be prepared to wait and block out a few hours of your day!
