At times, when a brake pad replacement is performed, the rotors in which the pads make contact, can be glazed. This can cause your squeak that you here when stopping, over time they may go away, or you may try and request the mechanic to re-cut your rotors.
Hello Lynn- the squeak could be caused by several things; certain after market brake pads can squeak if an anti-squeal compound has not been used on the back of the brake pads- also if the rotors have not been replaced this can cause the problem or there is a possibility of wheel bearing issues - hope this helps.

Unfortunately, sometimes brakes are squeaky. If you had them checked out and ok'd by a professional technician, they are probably fine. If you really can't deal with the noise, you could request a different brand of pads to be put on, but this would most likely be at your cost. If you are ok with the squeak and continue driving with the current pads, your brakes will most likely be ok for quite a while. Make sure you take note if the brakes begin to feel different or make a different or grinding sound. This would indicate a problem that should be checked out.
