sounds like they have a grounded wire or the sending unit float is stuck on yhe wires, this has happened to us b4.return and explain nicely and ask if they can recheck by doing a gauge sweep with a tech 2 scanner

sounds like the shop may have crossed the sender wire when they replace the fuel pump pig-tail or the bent the float
