My Honda Civic with an automatic trans. rolls backwards on hills

My 2002 Honda Civic with an automatic transmission rolls backwards on hills when the brake is released. It rolls quickly and doesn't stop until the brake is pressed. Shouldn't the automatic transmission hold the car in place until the gas is applied?
