I don't really want to leave my phone with some random guys!!

depends. but i would say most would be while you wait.. alot of phones just need an unlock code which people can get off ebay and the like...

Well, you'd want to back it up anyway before you have it unlocked, so then do a factory reset before you take it there. Nothing to snoop then.
As to how long - that depends on the method, on the phone etc.., A rooted Samsung Galaxy S is unlocked in 5 minutes. Other devices/OSs involve a ROM flash and other voodoo. Could take a bit longer.
