Cisco user Priviliges

If I understand in cisco devices, if you give someone privilege 15, they can do whatever they want on the device.
So, let 's say there is a junior Admin, that needs just :
- to view the configuration , no modification at all, should the Senior Admin give them Privilege 0 (Zero) ?
- if Senior Admin needs to give specific command permissions to Junior Admin, how can this be done?

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

privilege level 1 should give a junior admin enough rights to see routing tables and such, just no rights to change anything.

Level 1 is user level.  Level 15 is privileged level.  Everything in between is undefined.  Until you define it.

So if you have a junior admin that needs more than user mode commands, you would define one of the levels in between 1-15 (for example, 5) and specify which commands that person would need.  

If you have a more senior admin, you would define a higher level (6) and specify which additional commands that level would get.

Switch(config)#username USER privilege 1 password PASSWORD

Use the "?" to view your options

Switch(config)#username USER privilege ?
  <0-15>  User privilege level

Switch(config)#username USER privilege 1 ?
  password  Specify the password for the user
  secret    Specify the secret for the user
  <cr>
