Yeah, it definitely doesnt look right imo... maybe he was new or just didnt know exactly what he was doing... but I would take them back and say you are getting vibrations and have them remove all the weights and rebalance. When I was a tech we would never apply that much weight without rotating the tire or trying other measures to get the weight down. And maybe things have changed in the past decade but there shouldnt be gaps between the weights on the same side of the wheel or a second layer of weights... and you appear to have both.
