Default Car pulls to right after brake job

Hello all,

Last week I had my brakes making real loud rubbing noise. I found that
the driver side rotor is badly scored.

Went to the toyota dealer and they inspected and said I need to
replace brake pads and two rotors for $350.00. After the job is done I
am observing the car pulling to right real bad and I need to hold the
steering with hands else it will drift to left.

I heard that to take off the old rotors, if they do not come easily
they hit hard with hamer to loosen them. Does this somehow caused the
alignment to go bad?

TIA,
vk

Take it back to the dealer an tell them to fix it. A brake job should
always end with a test drive to set the pads. They didn't do it.
