Whoever replaced your pads may have neglected to apply anti squeal goop to the back of the new brake pads. Brake pads should have some greasy stuff smeared on their surfaces where they meet the caliper, the caliper piston, and at the ends where they fit into the caliper. The squeal is caused by high frequency vibration where the back of the pad presses against the caliper and caliper piston(s).
