You will not receive a receipt. Your employer and his attorney will.

Usually takes 10-17 days from date of receipt at the USCIS service center the petition was mailed to. Ask employer to check on their online banking site whether the checks to DHS were already cashed. I can guarantee you they were. In the back of the check, alongside the endorsement information there will also be a case number. Note it down. That way you can make inquires about the progress of the petition, both at www.uscis.com and by calling the nationwide toll free number.
Regular processing receipts may take a few weeks to arrive. Assuming the employer's checks have already been cashed by the USCIS, the employer can view a copy of the back of the check (by contacting their bank) and the receipt number should be printed on the back. You can then track the status of your application online, and if necessary, contact the USCIS to resend the receipt notice.
It can take approximately 2 weeks for a receipt notice to be issued. Give or take a few days in either direction. The Vermont Service Center seems to take a bit longer than that, or at least that is my limited experience with them since 90%+ of my cases go to California. However, as Mr. Capriotti indicated, the beneficiary is not issued a receipt notice. Copies go to the petitioner and the attorney of record.
