    Welcome to the forum.

    See my corrections above, in red.

    Both of your sentences mean you still work there. The second simply gives more information (how long you have been there).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I appreciate it.
    See above. We say "to make a mistake", not "to do a mistake".
