(I'm not being a smart-*** suggesting these, but...)
Check the obvious...spark plug wires connected? Does it have fuel? Is the fuel pump fuse okay?

The starter turns, but does the engine turn? The reason I ask is that unless the engine turns, there will be no spark....I suspect that when they installed the torque converter they fugged up the starter motor and bendix gear...and that the starter is only spinning free, not engaging the fly wheel.

If the shop cant tell the difference between a free spin and crank/no spark I would doubt the entire job!

Check your cps that will cause it to do this. It is located on the transmission they could have done something to it when installing the converter
