    He works at here quite a long time.

    He works at here quite a long time.
    He works at here a long time.

    The sentences above sound grammatically incorrect. How to say a person has been working in a company for a long period.

    He has worked here (for) quite a long time.
    He has worked here (for) a long time.
    He has been working here (for) quite a long time.
    He has been working here (for) a long time.

    Re: He works at here quite a long time.

    Once again, mampwamp, I'd like to know where you find these sentences you ask about. Most of them are rather odd in some way.
