Brake squealing!!

I can't stand it anymore. I have replaced my pads to ceramic, put new rotors and hardware on and they still squeak! Anyone help?

Ill give it one more week since I changed them before thanksgiving. But it squeaks when they get warm and when I give medium braking power. When I brake hard it goes away but when they get warm they start to squeak

did you lube all the slides and any part of the pad making contact with the caliper? if not that'll make them squeal like a pig.

when you put the rotors on did you completely spray them down with brake parts cleaner and wipe the shipping oil off?

I'm not sure if I should return the oreillys rotors or autozone pads?
