Question about 2005 Dodge Neon
Driving down highway and car shut off. Timing belt had broke. All 16 valves were bent, head was removed, and all valves replaced. Head placed back into vehicle, timing belt replaced and put on vehicle (as well as new water pump). Tried to start vehicle just to find that there is zero compression in all 4 cylinders. What could be causing this?
Have you put each cylinder at top dead center on compression
stroke & done a cylinder leak down test BEFORE ever starting
the motor,& is the timing belt still on & timed correctly?
Compression is relative to many things & not much use these
days,you got it or you don't

If this is 2.0 liter duel over head cam than engine damage most likely will happen if the timing belt brakes sorry about the bad news .

Try trading standards (or equivalent) sounds to me that the "mechanics" who fit the parts should have, at least some responsibility to the damage caused. If you drove the car in then they are at fault, in my opinion. but ask yourself, would you want to be dragged through the legal system and keep your reputation if you were the garage owner? I think not.

First thing you want to check is if the rotor on the distributor is at the #1 plug wire when the #1 cylinder is at top dead center. This will ensure the timing is set correctly.

You installed the belt with the crankshaft 180 degrees out of place. It is very unlikely that the belt slipped, unless there is internal damage in the engine.
