Usually it's caused from uneven pad contact causing the pads to flutter resonating a squealing noise.

You need to burn in the pads first. Good tip I got from MBUK. Smear mud all over your rotors, and gently pull the lever, let the pads scrape all the mud off. Faster break-in time this way. Otherwise, just do like 50 hard stops.
