brakes squeeking after changing them...

i recently got my brakes changed sensors pads and rotors and after driving around for a little they started squeaking again...is this normal ive read e90's have that problem but this happens when im braking not while its rolling. its been around a month now. just asking before i take it back to where i got it done. i dont have time to get it checked so i thought id ask here first.

You can put anti-squeal compound between the brake pad and the caliper, that will lessen the squeal by reducing or eliminating vibration. Problem solved - cheaply

Make sure your brake pads and rotors are properly burnished. The burnishing process gives the brake rotor surface a nice transfer layer that reduces noisy and allow the brake pads to work properly. If your rotors looks nice and shiny(one source of the noise) or still have the cross hatching finish, your brakes aren't properly burnished.
