Your tensioner is clearly not tensioned right. Take it back to the shop and have them re- time and retension it. I'd be severely pissed, cause that pointer is supposed to be in the window at all times. That's why the belt moved to the outside. I wouldn't recommend just loosening it and re tension it like that since it is a interference motor. Make sure you re time it to ensure that it is in time when you re-tension it. Next time drive down to Texas and we'll do it for ya, we've done it numerous times already lol
