2001 Monte Carlo - brakes squeal "whistle"

I just had my brakes changed on my 2001 Monte Carlo SS. The brakes now "whistle" when I apply the brakes. The work was done at my local Chevy dealer and I was told that brakes will make some noise; the "whistling" I hear when I brake is not a faint or subtle sound, I find their explanation hard to believe and totally unacceptable. I have an appointment to have the brakes looked at again.
Thank you,
Barbara

Actually - I had the same problem and replaced my brakes 4 times in a year. YES 4 TIMES because of the whistling. I switched from metallic to ceramic pads and works like a charm! Ceramic will not allow the noise, plus I have found to have much better control over braking and short distances.

If the steering wheel is turned the continue to turn the steering wheel in the same direction as the tires are going while applying firm pressure to the brake the try to pull it out of park. I know this sounds crazy but they have so many safety swithches on them, you may have one not activating.
