Did he wash the rotors with soap and hot water before installing?

My 09 Edge had the emergency brake in the small drum inside the rear rotors. could be the squeal origin.

Sounds like he either didn't replace some or all of the hardware when he did the pads, or he forgot to clean and lube some of the pins... or maybe forgot to clean the hub surface.

Have him quickly re-do the pads and hardware and properly apply grease to the hardware (both sides). Remove the hardware, apply grease to the caliper frame, re-install the hardware, apply grease, then the pads.

Probably a hardware issue. Have him make sure all of the rust was removed from the bracket before installing the new clips.
