Brake Problems - Please Help!!!!!

I recently had new rotors and brake pads placed on my 95 C280. There is a grinding sound each time I press the brakes. A BrakesPlus representative stated that the rotors had to "wear-in." He said give it about 500 miles or so. Does anyone know if this is true? Admittedly, the sound has gotten better. I am not sure if I have a problem or simply need to be patient.

There should be no noise after a brake job. At this point, I guess I'd play along until it stopped improving, then return to the shop.
