But when I do add jobs over the amount of slots using qrsh (I haven't tried it using any other submiting method) it doesn't queue them it just returns a line saying:

qrsh is usually used for interactive jobs where you are not
expecting it to wait. You can enable waiting with the option
'-now no'.

Submitting a job for (possibly later) execution is usually done
with qsub. Unlike qrsh the job will be run independent of your
shell, there is no standard input and output is redirected to a file.
