How long does it usually take to get a call from a place you applied for?

I know the economy is rough still but when can you expect to get a call back from a company you applied for? I've been applying for Receptionist, Data Entry, Administrative, Mail Clerk, and even retail jobs so I"m basically looking for anything! Most of these places I applied to last week or some longer, and I still haven't received calls. I only had about 3 interview, and that was it. I'm starting to become desperate now.

Sadly companies have so many applicants they do not always respond to all failed applications. You could phone to check on the progress of your application. This would show that you are really interested and may move you forward a bit.
