He went again and hired himself out to a job and got a coin. He brought the money and threw it into the well. He went and hired himself again. He was given a coin for his work once or twice a year. He brought the money to his home.

He did just "get" a coin, he worked for it and earned it.
He didn't "hire himself", he hired himself out to someone else.

Is it acceptable to say it as
He hired himself out to do a work instead of a job? Is a job an american variant of a work?
And is it acceptable to use Get and Give instead of Earn?
