Clutch issues

I would first check the shift linkage alignment.

Did they properly bleed the clutch hydraulic system?

Are you sure that the clutch is not disengaging?  Doe the car move under
its own power in gear with the clutch pedal pushed? Can you tell how far
into the clutch pedal stroke the clutch releases?

Whether clutch (installation?) problems or shift linkage misalignment, it
sounds as if this shop needs to be accountable for getting it right.

Another reason I do my own work - usually I know what I mess up, though
