Did the oil changer guy fixed my screeching break pads and not tell me?
So I went in for an oil change. My break pads makes loud screeching sound. but during the the oil change, I heard low pumping sound.. at that time I didn't know what it was and ignored it. now my car doesn't make screeching sound or am I crazy?
*loud pumping sound
Like loud hydraulic pumping sound and I was the only car there and the sound came from the car. I'm not sure i've ever heard that sound before getting an oil change
If he did fix it, then that's the nicest guy ever.

He might have done something and not even realized he 'fixed' the noise.

The pumping sound you heard was probably the tech putting fresh oil back in your car. Most shops today have a pump something like (not exactly) a fuel gun at a gas station that's hooked up to an air system to put oil in vehicles, it's rare we use cans and bottles anymore. Especially if the shop does a lot of oil changes the air pump system is more efficient and quicker for them to use than manually dumping 5 quarts in one at a time.
It's not impossible he looked at your brakes and fixed it by bending the sensors that makes brakes squeak when they're low back to where the sensors are supposed to be. Those are a thin, little, metal bracket that does that that's easy to bend. He may have done that if he heard them squeaking while it was on the lift.

The pumping sound was pumping oil into your car. They don't use cans / bottles of oil for the most popular oils. The brakes? It's likely that they added a little brake fluid and possible, but not likely, that they used an air hose to blow dust out of your brakes.

Maybe they lubed the front brake discs.

Not in his job description. He was probably operating a pump to pump out or in the oil. Screeching is letting you know it will only be the cost of pads (not rotors) but do it YESTERDAY. There is no warning light - just the screech sound. Go to a brake shop while you can still STOP THERE.
