After clearing the written exams you will be issued a call letter to attend the Interview ( SSB ) which is further divided into 2 stages
    Ist Stage : Screening , only if you qualify this stage that you will be retained for further testing or sent back on the same day.
    IInd stage : comprises of Psychology tests, Group tasks and personal interview. If you qualify these tests and are recommended by the board you will be further retained for the medicals. ( which will last till 5 more days )

    SSB can be conducted at any of the 3 places : Allahabad, Bhopal, Bangalore. Accommodation, Meals are free and you will even be given Travelling allowance.

    If you are engineer you can apply for the SSC ( tech ) for which age limit is upto 27 years. You get a direct call letter for Interview and don't even have to undergo a Written exam like the CDS. Hope it helps.
