Work Visa for Turkey

I got hired by Oxford as Academy to work as an English teacher in Istanbul. I want to know how long it would take to process the work visa from the employer side. I was also searching on google about the procedure for work visa application and I got confused because it says that I have to visit the consulate and a reference number will be given. Btw, I already sent a copy of my passport, a photo, a signed contract agreement and other details. 
Can someone enlighten me? Has the procedure been changed already?

Thank you so much!
