I assume you have drum brakes in the back? Who did the install? It could be a rust ring has formed on the inside of the drums, contributing to the noise. You would need to sand it off. Also check the parking brake adjustment, it could be off letting your brake shoes contact the drums when you don't want it too. Were the shoe contact points greased? Sounds like you didn't do the install, take it back and have them correct the issue till it's fixed.
