Fill the reservoir and bleed at the slave as previously mentioned.

If it is adjustable set the free play at .5 to .75 inch, add more free play if the engagement point is higher than you like, but under no circumstances eliminate the free play altogether or the throw out bearing will fail very quickly (it needs to rest when your foot is off the pedal).

Mark the reservoir where you filled it and keep an eye on it, if the level is dropping you are loosing fluid somewhere. Usually the slave cylinder fails first. If the slave is not wet with fluid, look under the dash where the actuator rod goes through the firewall for signs of leakage at the master cylinder.

It's possible the people who replaced it did nothing wrong, but if bleeding and proper adjustment don't help it could be something wrong with their installation. Confirm this before going in with a chip on your shoulder, especially it they did nothing with the master or slave (they replaced neither).
