I just hived two packages a couple of days ago. The bees are flying around their hives but don't seem to have any established flight path. They don't really seem to be leaving the area much either. How long does it usually take for them to feel oriented?

My daughters package was bringing in pollen with in a few hours of being hived. That is my only experience so take that with a grain of salt.

They do a Orientaion flight then they are good to go. and they go find food.

I just installed my first package and wrote a very similar post. Edited to say there were a few posts indicating this sounded like normal orientation behavior.
