check your wallet first, your going to need it. check to see if your rubber lines are twisted could be they are getting closed on the inside (from old fluid build up) causeing them to basically make a one way check valve had it happen to a ford ranger replaced the rubber hoses to the front calipers and it was fine.

I would have driven my vehicle back to the service shop and right through their office window. What the hell was the tech thinking by doing a brake service and not road testing the vehicle? Stupid ass tech could've caused an accident.

No problem, just stay safe. Replacing brake pads, rotors and calipers isn't too difficult and you can save money by doing it yourself. You may have warped those rotors too, so just take 'em off and inspect them further. Hope things turn out well for you, and have a great trip.
