Mike, basically ATW indexes similarly to all the major engines: once you have some important links pointing to the site, they will sooner or later pick the site up.
In my experience the typical ATW pattern is to first index the index page, and in a second go, the rest/more pages.
Some people found ATW to get their sites very fast, some have waited many many weeks.
Using the free submission doesn't hurt, some people have reported it had helped them, so you might as well submit some important hub pages.
