What is the French job 'Rectifieur (ouvrier)'?

Jump to last reply

I place French exchange students in homes for 3 weeks in July and as part of the student application, the parents' occupations are listed...in French. Normally my French is sufficient to translate these entries, but today I received a student whose father is listed as 'rectifieur (ouvrier)'. I know 'rectifier' means to correct, but can't put it together with a job unless it's a corrections officer (as in a prison)? I tried to look it up online but couldn't find an answer so was hoping someone here might know.
