There will always be a little lever travel on hydraulics, but once you start squeezing and the pads engage, the lever should "firm up." If it doesn't, they need to be bled. Systems now generally come pre-bled, and sometimes the guy building the bike will get lazy and just figure all is well. A good tech will test ride it before the bike leaves the shop.
