Quite possible that they stripped the threads or if they used an impact wrench, possibly slightly dented the pan, causing oil to leak out past the gasket. Lean on the dealership about this one, it should be covered under your bumper-to-bumper warranty if the pan is leaking like that, no matter whose fault it is.
