AIUI, the job is usually a part time position, arranged through local NHL teams. (They don't travel unless neutral officials are needed, say during the late rounds of the playoffs.)
My guess is maybe $50/game, if that. Most of the guys I see are "retirement" age.
An interesting book on the subject is
"In the Bin: Reckless and Rude Stories from the Peanlty Boxes of the NHL"
by Lloyd Freeberg (worked for Anaheim).
Off ice officials work the various off ice positions (time keeper, goal judge, penalty box attendant, stats, etc.) and may change jobs by game/month/season, depending on needs.
