Since you are taking it back, have them check all the brake lines in front, and the wheel cylinder (if the back has drum breaks). Although you had only the front done, it's a good ideas to have them check the back brakes, and the master cylinder. Check your brake fluid before taking it back and make sure it's full, if so, you may just have air in the brake lines. If this is the case, either they forgot to bleed the brakes, or didn't bleed them enough.

When I change my front brakes, I use a "C" clamp to slowly push the piston back in. (You can get them for a few dollars at Wal-Mart, etc.) Make sure you open the brake fluid reservoir while compressing them, as the fluid level will rise; but don't leave the reservoir open too long, as brake fluid will absorb water from the air.
For the parking brake, I'm not sure. I think the parking brake often works off of the rear brakes, so changing the pads should have helped there. Maybe air in the lines? Do you have any trouble with "soft" or "mushy" brakes when you use them? If so, you might want to bleed the system, to get any air out - it can be dangerous.
