So far in the Sims 4 there are no rabbit holes (that may change who knows). When your Sims leave for work, you cannot see where they are working which is similar to The Sims 2. There are also no carpools, Sims simply walk off the lot which in my opinion is a good thing as you do not waste time traveling to and from work so you can work on your Sim’s skills until the last minute (my Sim is quite often 5 minutes late).
The Sims 4 Careers Chance cards are there and allow you to pick from options to give potential benefits or penalties to your Sim related to their job but my Sim did not gain or lose anything major. The chance cards are very few and got the same one a few times.
Sims cannot leave from a community lot to go to their job, they will return home first, then go to work which is a bit silly so I’m hoping it will be fixed/improved eventually.
