i got mine alignment done about 2 weeks ago and 2days after i got it done i noticed that the alignment was still off so i took it back and they fix it for free. but now again its out of alignment! when ever i took it to them they didnt tell me it needed anything but obviously something is wrong, right?
can someone help me diagnose this problem

explain your "out of alignment"

toe in, toe out, camber, caster?

the 1st two or three days after i got my 1st alignment it drove way smoother. after that it started to shake again on the highway.
when i got home i took a look and you could visually see that while the driver tire was straight the passenger was pointing out some. took it back, they realigned it, and now its been about a week or more and its starting to do the same thing again.

ok, shaking on the hiway isn't alignment. wheel visually pointing different directions is. no reason for the alignment to change after they've done it unless they aren't tightening the sleeves, doubtful. you may have something else going on, worn out suspension components or something like that. also sounds like on another thread you have some other issues with noises in the front end iirc. get the suspension checked out real well first.

Toe-in issues sounds like a tie rod or drag link ..shimmy could be bad balance, bad stabilizer shock. Like jpdocdave,said, get the front end checked out ....
