Now wait anywhere from 8 months to 3+ years for initial assessment notice.

You didn't tell us what category you applied under, what visa post and what
is your nationality and country you reside in (and resided in before) -
without such basic info nobody can give you any better estimates, sorry.

I applied for immigration under skilled worker catogory through Bafflo cousulate in US. I am a Chinese citizen and have been working in US for 5 years. My work visa will expire in a couple of years and i don't want to go back to China and US green is impossible for me, I don't like US anyway.

You should expect initial assessment sometimes within 10 to 14+ months from
the date your application was received. If you are lucky and get interview
waiver then at that time your background/security check will be initiated
and will take about a year+ to conclude. If your application cannot be
assessed without the interview (due to non-conclusive or missing evidence,
matters requiring further clarification, verification or evaluation, etc.)
then expect interview about 20 to 26+ months from application date and in
such case background/security check will start only after successful
interview. Unfortunately background/security check for Chinese nationals
takes forever thanks to a complete lack of cooperation from Chinese
authorities.

So, it is highly unlikely in your case to get approval (if you of course
qualify) in less than 2 years.
