Professional Hiring Process and Timing Question

I applied for a professional position (full time) in early November and I've seen the position re-posted a number of times. The original posting date was the first week of November, and I'd had my eye out for almost this exact position, and applied within a day or two of the listing going up. Then, two weeks later the listing was "refreshed" and the date changed. It just happened last week again for a third time, so when you go into the hiring dashboard, it says I applied November 5th for a position posted November 26th. Weird, right?

I've read where it can take up to 4 weeks just to move to the next step of the hiring process, so I'm thinking worst case scenario it'll be 3-4 weeks from November 26th, not the original date of Nov. 5th, which would be any day now. Can anyone give me some insight to the recruiting process, how many steps there are before even getting to an interview and that kind of thing? Some of the forums out there are pretty ambiguous and talk about online personality profiles and all this other stuff you need to do before you actually get in front of the decision maker. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I'm a mid-career marketing person with an MBA from a well respected school (not Ivy league, but pretty good) and about 8 years experience, but never with a company this big. My last interview was in 2008 so I'm a little rusty with the job search thing, and I've already sent the application, so I'm really just playing the waiting game. I'd like to follow up, but I don't even know who to contact or how. Thanks.
