Before you got the vehicle, what was removed and why was the serpentine belt off? Were they replacing a faulty component?

Make sure the crankshaft pulley was installed properly. They could have installed it backwards and can be easy to do. If it is just remove the crankshaft pulley nut, use a pry bar to pry off the pulley and turn it around. Let me know what you find.
