No, it shouldn't be hard to stop. Especially not worse than before you brought it. Same with squealing. Was this a reputable shop or a friend/family deal?

Definitely should not be squeaking. Did you get new pads and rotors? Sometimes just changing the pads results in noises depending on how they wore, being put on a more flat surface.

I personally don't touch drum brakes until they give me a reason to, like a low pedal, grinding, or pulsation. You can do some preventative maintenance by getting them serviced at maybe 60k if you want. They regularly last over 100k. I've got like 135k on mine right now actually.

The answer to question number 2 may be the issue. The one thing you don't want is having brakes that are not up to par that can cause you to have an accident. Take the car to professional to have your brakes checked to insure that they are in proper order, and if not, get them repaired there!!!!

Yeah, I always do the pads and rotors together. I saw this exact issue today on a Rogue. Front rotors were hammered, brand new pads. No grease anywhere, old hardware. If you want to see how to properly so brakes check out Eric O on the south main auto channel. He's a top notch and entertaining tech.

I agree with tutti57.
Eric O., is entertaining and educational. He has a ton of brake videos. Maybe you can even gain enough confidence to do it yourself.
Good luck!
