  2.    ON  dbo.test 
  4. AS 
  5. BEGIN
  6.     -- SET NOCOUNT ON added to prevent extra result sets from
  7.     EXEC master..xp_CMDShell 'C:\testjob.bat';
  9.     -- Insert statements for trigger here

Your batch files is probably doing something to cause an infinite loop. It's probably inserting a record into the test table which triggers job_trigger. But that's a guess because you haven't told us what the batch file does.
