Chances are they are just testing you out since you’re brand new and need to earn your trust. Do it all with a smile while also going above and beyond to show your value. Give it a few months and then assess if you should bring it up to your boss.

Thank you. This made me feel better and hopeful. Taking your advice!

Give it time. The worst thing you can do is jump into a new job too aggressively. Use the time to get to know the agency and establish yourself as someone they can trust. If you demonstrate that they’ll start throwing you into the fire (then you’ll be overworked ;)

I agree with all of the above, but also -- if they don't step you up after you've surfaced the issue & given it a few months, just leave. These roles & expectations become concrete over time, and it sounds like they misrepresented your role to you during the interview. That explanation alone would justify the short tenure in any interviews.
