Very easy, I gave them my passport and just waited a couple of minutes for them to put my info in the computer, they stamped my passport and I was good to go. They didn’t ask me anything.
My flight was the only one that arrived at that time so the line went very fast, maximum 30 minutes and I was one of the last people they checked. Lots of international students on our flight, something to be expected as school starts soon.

The wait in the queue was almost 1 hour long (only the passengers from my flight), since there were only 3 or 4 officers working.
My experience with CBP was pleasant. I handed him my passport and the health form (that I filled on the plane) and specified that I'm coming on a spouse visa. Then he asked me if I am married to a US citizen and if I carry any other documents. Since my application is in the online system, I wasn't given any sealed package after the interview. I confirmed the mailing address for the Green Card and I explained why is different from my current location.
The whole interaction took less than 10 minutes. He put the stamp on the opposite page and wrote my A number, handed my passport and health form back and said that I was all set.
Before baggage claim, everyone has to go through a screening, where they take your temperature and ask a few questions. They write something on the form and hand it back to you, and after you pick up your luggage you have to present the form to the agents before exit doors.

It was very confusing as the lady officer misinterpreted my visa as being an already stamped visa, so she thought I was waiting for my green card and simply reentering on a stamped visa. I picked up my luggage and went out to the waiting hall in the terminal. Realizing I had no stamp on my visa I went to the Border & Immigration Office and the officer there went back inside to have my visa stamped. I feel like I just slipped into the US having had no questions asked. And this during a time when barely any visas are issued!

Arrived back to the US after 11 months and 3 weeks abroad.
Really nice older gentleman at the customs booth, no issues whatsoever. Took my fingerprints, look over my passport and Green Card, said "Welcome" and we were on our way. Took less than 5 minutes, and this is during a global pandemic.

I got admitted in the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic. The airport was completely empty. I went through the normal line and when I said I had k-1 visa, a guard was called to take me to a special room. The room was almost empty, only 2 people sitting. I didn't wait more than 1 minute and I was called. No question was made. I gave my passport and sealed envelope with medical exams. Got a stamp and left the room. All the process took 5 minutes maximum. I was very early in the morning, like 5 am, so people were a bit sleepy.
