After the application is filed, the USCIS will issue a receipt notice. Next, you are sent a notice to appear at the USCIS District Office (local) in order for biometrics (fingerprints) to be captured. Finally, an interview is scheduled. Currently, the naturalization interview is scheduled (on average) within 4-5 months of filing.
