I have had it happen both ways:
One time, I put on a new set of pads, and they squealed for *quite* a 
while before they wore in.  BTW, this was with new rotors.

I put on a set of Repco Metalmasters, with new rotors, and they have 
worked fine.

If you are *not* replacing the rotors, I would recommend having them 
turned(cut), as it provides a fresh/even surface for the new pads to 
grip.  If the rotors are scuffed/gouged a little, they will eat the new 
pads in a hurry.
