[ Edited ]
★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.50.67
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Click on a bartender
What happens when the bug occurs? The bartender stands outside for hours on end doing nothing or goes around talking to people. They do not tend the bar causing other Sims to go over and make their own drinks making everyone fight over it. They also do not, if tending the bar finally, have the option to order food or drinks on them. This has been a problem for almost 4 years now.
What do you expect to see? For it to be fixed after 4 years.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure

★ Guide

I get this too sometimes. Its like they don't know where the bar is. The only way I have been able to get them to do their job is take the sim I am playing as walk up to the bartender and start chatting. Once I got a good conversation going I walk over close to the bar and hit "Chat Here". The bartender follows and THEN notices the bar and finally goes to work.

I noticed this happens more when its at a downloaded gallery created bar or a bar I built myself more than the bars that already come with the game/packs. Maybe a wall or something is in the way? Cocktail

Ever since University expansion none of my bartenders or vendors work. They show up to the lot but do not get behind the bar, into the food stall or the new cafeteria thing. It happens on every single lot I've tried.

@pixeltrashcan I've noticed it, but it's sporadic. Sometimes the bartender won't go to the bar. Usually another bartender will spawn and take over fine. Sometimes the bartender is at the bar normally the first time.
