Brake squeal?!?

So I'm not new to the forum but couldn't get logged in and I've been very frustrated with this issue on my brakes.

So I went to pep boys to get my brakes checked out about 2 months ago. They replaced the pads with metallic pads and everything seemed fine. But I really wanted ceramic pads mainly because of brake dust but also because I know they're better. I went back 2 weeks later and got my ceramic pads installed and that's where it all started. I've had a squealing ever since.

I now have power stop slotted and crossed drilled rotors with ceramic carbon pads. Pep boys gave me a huge discount because of all the issues and I love the look. However I am still getting the squealing and pep boys has told me they've done everything they can to prevent it. Has anyone else had this issue?

New rotors + new pads (ceramic carbon) front and rear for both = still squealing!!!

They make a paste & pad vibration pad kit to install under your brake pads. Ask PEP boys, they probably carry it.

I have powerstop cross drilled slotted rotors all around with hawk 5.0 street pads and centric ceramic posi quiets and in the back and my car STOPS. I'm talking like drag the chin spoiler on the ground. However I noticed the better braking, good brakes come with a trade off... You guessed it squeaks! My brakes will usually start to squeal and squeak on me when I baby the car and use the brakes conservatively. And when it's cold out the squeak pretty bad. My fix is to just do a few hard stops and it goes away for a week or two if I continue to drive like a grandma.
