How long does this process take? from say, "Copying installer files to disk..." every mac is different but if you have an estimated time (im on a relatively new 2013 macbook pro) Just wondering if the install is failing or hanging . . .

Likely several minutes.

Lots of ways to watch this. One suggestion is to bring up a Finder window, highlight the "Install OS X El Capitan" volume, make sure you are in file "list" mode, and keep an eye on the file size.
