Hmmm...there could be a few reasons why your brakes are squeaking. Pad and rotor quality are the main reasons that brakes squeak. What type of pads did you purchase(ceramic, semi-metallic, or organic)? The quality of the pad means alot. If you buy a $20 set of pads, yeah, there gonna squeak. I suggest Wagner Thermoquiet pads(semi-metallic) or Friction Master ceramic pads. Keep in mind, you get what you pay for. Top quality pads are not cheap. As for the rotors, if you reuse them, be sure to have them machined before re-installiation.
