Applying for permit on the same day I am starting my job

Hi all - I was just informed that I do not need to wait for a Visa to work in Switzerland from HR as I am a EU citizen and happen to have a French passport, my wife and kids are British but she only will join me in a couple of months so I don't have to worry just yet about them.

As I will be separated from my family for a bit, I'd like to maximize my time with them. Arriving on Sunday the 14th of June and starting my job on the 15th of June would be ideal. It seems I need to register with the authorities BEFORE I start my new job - for those of you who have registered in Geneva, how long does it usually take to register with the administration? Is it feasible for me to register at 9AM and be at my desk in my new job around 11AM?

The HR function of my new employer is not in Geneva and they are not as aware as to what I need or do not need to start my job, instead of relying on them I figured I'd rely on the communal spirit of a forum! (I was just informed today that I can just go to work without applying ahead of time for a work Visa). Border will be open from the 8th of June so I apparently just need my contract to fly out from Heathrow
