You mean interview at arrival?
Yes.
About how long till Iím out? Does it depend on the lines or you get an appointment?

Was no wait for me, and I doubt you'll have to wait, they sent me to the agent meant for GE who have problems with the Kiosk, so it's mostly empty and 2 agents sitting around, it took between 5-10 min.
Easy smooth process.

And don't forget to bring proof of address, although on site it says just your passport, but the agent wouldn't process without proof.

A regular drivers license wouldn't work?

Yup, I first started arguing that I saw online only passport is needed, so he said they don't know our job and I can't finish the process without proof of address.
Than this came to my mind..

Agent happened to accept a phone rental receipt, that was rented for my trip tat morning, as a proof of address...
well isn't that great proof? just comes to show how safe and secure GE is..

Anyone here went for an interview in JFK pre flight to Canada? How long does the whole appointment take?
  I would use mobile passport but thats only great for arrivals.
  Really want to apply for nexus,but availability is so scarce for some odd reason so theres no way I can book an appointment for when I land.

We had applied for our Global Entry passes and our interview, which we had to schedule months in advance, was scheduled very close to our departure for Israel.  We decided to stop at the office at BWI airport on our way to visit our kids.  It turned out, on that day, they had a lot of no shows for the interview.  We were able to slip in to an empty slot.  Don't know if this is possible in larger offices like the JFK or NY metro area, but if you have the ability to try it on a weekday or get to the airport early on another trip, you may be able to bypass the wait.

Believe it or not there's a lot of open slots in JFK.

EWR works for sure. Although when I went there was an appt for 15 after my arrival, so I scheduled that one.

Living in brooklyn, not worth driving out to ewr to go to yyz, will take jfk vs lga to go to the GE interview.
   What I really wanted was to get Nexus as I go constantly from the u.s. to Canada but being that in YYZ there is no availability for an appointment up untill Oct 16th, I tried in the past walking up today agent asked him if I can take an interview he told me I have to book it in advance online so that takes care of that, I guess we'll have to do with GE until I can get Nexus, and lastly find a seller for 15$ to get the ge application fee, or find a freind of mine who has an au who never made use of the credit yet.
