Italian citizen working in Zurich. What's the situation for NON-EU wife and son?


I have just arrived in Zurich and I'm still reading (a lot) about the migration process and all the paperwork, but please I'd like to know the personal experience of someone who passed the same or similar situation.

I'm Italian (and Brazilian) and my wife is from Dominican Republic. My son at the moment (18 months old) is only registered as Brazilian and Dominican.

We went to the Kreisburo this week to get registered as a family and everything went OK. I've paid the tax for the whole family and now both, my wife and child have to go to the Imigration Office for photo and fingerprints.

My questions:

1) How long does it normally take for me to receive the work permit?Is it standard type of permit, since I'll be a permanent employee or it's only given after the completion of probation period?

2) after my wife and baby getting the card from the Kreisburo, can both go and come back to Switzerland anytime they want? Of course here I'm talking also about leaving the Schengen Area.

3) Can my wife work with that or is there another process to get her work permit?
