How to use 'since when' in questions


To enquire a person about his tenure I use,  Since when are you working in this company ? I feel it is wrong. Please help.

Some times I use, how long have you been working here ?  Is it correct ?

Using the sentence, 'Since when are you working in this company?', is not a polite question, at least in US English. It would be used sarcastically, as when a worker who doesn't work very hard complains about his workload, you might use this.


How long have you been working here?

When did you start working here?

These would be better questions to use.
