First, make sure you have loaded the slurm module:

module load slurm

After you've submitted a job, you chan check the status of the job using the squeue command. Issuing this command alone will return the status of every job currently managed by the scheduler. As a result we recommend narrowing the results by user name or job number:

squeue --job <your_job_number>


squeue -u <your_user_name>

Or, for a full list of options available to the squeue command issue: 

man squeue
