The impact toed-in the right front.

Total toe may have been in spec still after the pothole, but the front wheels are no longer aligned to the steering rack.

They changed the rear alignment by toe-ing both rears to the right. This is wrong and needs to be fixed.

Take it back and tell them to put the rears back where they were, lock the steering wheel to TDC, and align the fronts to match the rears.

Plus they screwed you by not setting tire pressures before the alignment. This is unacceptable and I would get a refund and find a better shop.
