Understanding the Applies To setting from the employee perspective

When an employee is assigned a job, the employee inherits the permissions associated with that job. In an enterprise configuration, because of the Applies To setting, the inheritance rules are slightly more complex. Specifically, the employee inherits a job's permissions only at locations that the job applies to and to which the employee has access. For example, consider a franchise manager, Megan Manager, who has access to all of the locations in the Franchise Owner 1 restaurant group shown in the illustration below (Boston, Burlington, NYC, Atlanta, and Charlotte).

Megan Manager is assigned a job that applies to the Boston and Burlington locations only and includes the Account Admin > User Permissions permission. In this scenario, Megan Manager will have the User Permissions permission for the Boston and Burlington locations but not for the NYC, Atlanta, and Charlotte locations.
