When the belt got replaced, the idler pulleys should have ben checked, so it sounds like they were not. Take the belt off and inspect the pulleys. Also a worn belt tensioner would cause a squeal.

Or a belt tensioner. Maybe pop the hood after its doing it, pump the gas in park and let the another person see if they can locate it. Sometimes if its a pulley or tensioner you may be able to see its crooked or off center.

Needs to be located and fix before your new belt get ate alive.
